New Logo Design by Stephanie Dellaportas

The Bortherhood is thrilled to present its new and magnificent logo to kick off our Lefkadian Brotherhood’s 80th anniversary Celebrations.

This is how Stephanie from Stephanie Dellaportas Designs describes her design in her own words:

“The design is inspired by Lefkada’s rich history, landscape and the Lefkadian- Victorian connection.

Representing the many myths Lefkada is related to is the ancient bust, crowned by Lefkada and Victoria.

The crown symbolises the importance of this connection, encompassed and united by the brotherhood, shown by the olive branch meaning peace and friendship. The background contrast of the white and blue hues represents the beautiful landscape Lefkada is known for – the white colour of the cape’s rocks against the mesmerising Ionian blue waters.”
