Cytherian Brotherhood of General Koronaios


   The Kytherian Society of California was founded in Oakland, California, on January 5, 1950. Its purpose was "to promote the interests of citizens and residents of the United States originating from the Island of Cythera."
        Its original name was The Cytherian Brotherhood of General Koronaios. The group's seal portrayed the image of General Koronaios, and around it is imprinted Cytherian Brotherhood. General Koronaios took part in the Cretan revolution from 1866-1869 and commanded the revolutionary forces in the County of Rethimnon. (General Panos Koronaios' statue was placed in the platia in Potamos.)
