St. Andrew’s X

Alternative Deco


Story: Saint Andrew, the patron of Patras, is directly linked to the city by its tomb, sacred relics, Holy Skull and his martyrdom; the Cross. The prevailing view is that the Cross was X-shaped. However, there has been much debate about the true shape. This view is so widespread that it is now common to refer to X-shaped Crosses as the “Apostle Andrew’s Cross”. It is worth mentioning that X is the symbol of the Russian Navy from which Andrew the Apostle is a patron. The specific variety of the wood composing the original cross has been proven to be olive wood dating back to the first century.



Liofyllo was founded in Patras where one of the main attractions is the Cathedral of Saint Andrew; the largest Orthodox church in Greece and the fourth largest Byzantine temple in the Balkans.
