Georgios Antoniou

Georgios Antoniou was born in 1924 in Flasou. His parents, Antonis and Efpraxia, had four more children. One of them was Antonis Savva who later on became Chief of the Police.

His faith in the supreme values and the love for his country urged him to become a member of EOKA (a team that fought against the English conquerors during 1955-59). He has also participated in the fights of 1964 when on 19th March he was shot dead by a Turk soldier. Georgios Antoniou was married and had a baby daughter.

We must also note that George Antoniou was a carpenter and worked in Cyprus Mining Company (CMC).
