According to Mythology, the island was created by Poseidon, who cut off with a stroke of its trident a part of Corfu with the purpose of lodging there his love with Amphitriti. So Paxoi is symbol is the trident. Paxian hero is Giorgos Anemogiannis, a burglar and torch who fell martyrdom during the liberation struggle of 1821, at the age of 23 in Nafpaktos.
