Hellenic Army officer rank insignia

This article describes the military rank insignia used by the Hellenic Army. The current insignia date back to the late 1930s, when British-style insignia were adopted.

The only regular officer to have been awarded the rank was General Alexander Papagos on 28 October 1949.
