Medal of 2015
The two sides of the medal are made of metal at gray colour, aiming to show the athlete running in different directions, to travel different distances and finally finishes in a race, which signification is not only the victory but the effort and the athletic ideal.
The perforated athlete figure, “reveals” the true identity of each participant. Through the same figure, someone can “see” the real protagonist of the games, that with perseverance and effort, aims to experience the perfect and great. The engraved letters used symbolizes the steep crevices of rocks, while their authentic imprints, which nostalgically collected from different parts of the island to be on the medal, are to reveal and animate favorite corners of Hydra. Points of which will spend athletes, points that have so much to recount the glorious history of our island.
Finally, the blue ribbon used to symbolizing the blue of Greece, the harmony of nature, the respect to it. The blue ribbon defining the borders of the island starting and ending with blue and light blue.
