Kolonaki Square

Kolonaki Square (Greek: Πλατεία Κολωνακίου, pronounced [plaˈti.a kolonaˈci.u]) is located in central Athens, Greece. Kolonaki itself is named after the small ancient column in the center of the square; the modern official name of this square is Plateia Filikis Etaireias (Πλατεία Φιλικής Εταιρείας) named for the "Friendly Society" that supported Greek independence. Originally, Kolonaki Square was just an area of open ground (around 1890) containing the column, and was only later planted with trees and designated as a square in about 1895–1900.
