History & Geography
“Idaia” is the first name of ancient Crete. This was the name of the mother of the ten Kouretes. Her husband Zeus, was the king of Crete. Zeus wanted to honour his wife, therefore he named the whole island “Idaia”. The company’s trademark is the daisy (Rodakas) with eight leaves which comes from the Faistos plate. The ancient Greeks used to believe that symbolizes the Sirius star. That emblem is often found in ancient Greek findings.
