    Central display of the crest is the dynamic figure of gunboat NIKIFOROS onboard at maximum speed. The Greek flag waving proudly in background, symbol of the mission to project its colors throughout the Eastern Aegean and where else asked as well as the defense of its natural space, that of our territorial waters. Scattered in the blue of the sea islands of the Aegean, Greek societies honor the ship and help with the crew’s rest. Finally, its course to the East, always vigilant monitoring and facing the enemy, ready to take action with a complete picture of the area to patrol.
