Culture redesign

Culture Minister Giorgos Voulgarakis unveiled yesterday a new logo for his ministry based on the Caryatid which is on display at the British Museum in London. He said the ministry had decided to replace its logo after a survey suggested that Greeks did not connect with the previous image of an ancient column. Voulgarakis added that the new logo would help make Greek culture more recognizable.
