The new capabilities of the Third Ship "ADRIAS" are depicted on the upper right and on the lower left corner of the crest. The three double Axes on the lower right corner symbolize the three crews of the three Ships with the same name and the three Tridents on the upper left corner symbolize the three Ships which were named after "ADRIAS".

  • History

    The name ADRIAS was chosen by the Hellenic Navy to name a HUNT class escort destroyer that was transfered from the British Royal Navy to the Hellenic Navy on 20 July 1942, in the same sense that the Hellenic Navy names other ships after areas of greek national interest. In 1943, during wartime operations in the Dodekanisa area, Adrias struck a mine, lost its entire bow, but managed to sail to Alexandria, an act that caused the admiration and respect of Allied Forces and boosted the morale of the crews of greek ships.
    The second ship with the same name, was also a HUNT type destroyer, delivered from the Royal Navy to the Hellenic Navy on 9 February 1945.
    The Frigate ADRIAS is the third ship that receives this name, in honour of the first ADRIAS and his heroic action during the second World War.
    The ship was constracted by ROYAL SCHELDER in NETHERLANDS on 31/07/78.The former ship΄s name was HMNS CALLENBURGH (F-808) and was commissioned in the DUTCH ROYAL NAVY on 26/07/89.The transfer of the Frigate ADRIAS to Hellenic Navy took place on 30 March 1994 at the Netherlands Royal Navy Base of DEN HELDER.Τhe arrival in Salamina Naval Base took place on 28/06/94.
    It is a modern ship, which has a great firepower, due to a large variety and quantity of weapons and weapon systems. It can accomplish all kind of missions and it's activity in the Hellenic Navy has been so far completely succesfull.


    ADRIAS, was the ancient name of the Adriatic Sea.
    This name came from the same name city which was funded on the Padus river delta by the King Adrias, son of Messapio Pausonas and father of Illirian Ionios.
