    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.

    1. Leader of EON, Statesecretary Allexandro Kanello Poulas.

    2. Propaganda poster.

    Note the fascist greeting on photo 4.

    Photos from Stormfanen, September 1941.

    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
