Greece’s national colors are blue and white and so is their flag. Some believe the blue signifies the sky and the water while the white symbolizes waves and clouds. These two colors dominate Mykonos island with a simple yet dramatic visual effect. The third color is red. It tends to be reserved for shutters, doors and church domes. This uniformity of colors and Cycladian architecture in Chroa is no accident. All new construction carefully conforms to strict building standards.
