Former flag of Aigeira - Image by Olivier Touzeau, 28 October 2012
Aigeira stretches from the Gulf of Corinth, where the town of Aigeira proper is located, to the mountains in the south.
The flag of the former municipality of Aigeira was white with its emblem. The emblem showed a sunset in shape of a Greek theater in light blue on a dark blue sea (Kokkonis website).
