    Greek National Youth Organization

    Greek "Blueshirts"

    A Greek youth organisation 1936 to 1941 was named Ethniki Organosis Neolaeas - EON which means National Youth Organisation.

    When you search information about the organisation, it is claimed that it was not a fascist organisation. The banner was was a blue-white crossbanner with a double axe. A symbol that, in my opinion, very much looks like the fascist symbol, the fasces, a bundle of rods that were tied around an axe.

    The government set up by the Germans after they occupied Greece in 1941, dissolved the EON.

    The uniform was blue.
    Boys: Short trousers or ski-like trousers, white ties, sidecap.
    Girls: Blue blouse, white shirt, white scarf, sidecap.

    Note the fascist greeting on photo 4.

    FIRST I have heard of a GREEK connection. With the anti fascist
    sentiments there and strong communist leanings it would IMO be almost impossible to parade around in an HJ uniform
