The same source shows the car flag of the Minister of Defense asa dark blue-red-light blue horizontally divided flag, fimbriated white with the Minister's emblem overall and a golden fring on three edges.
The emblem and the inscription can be seen on the website of the Ministry of Defense. The text has a quite unusual Greek font, though. The inscription ΑΜΥΝΕΣΘΑΙ ΠΕΡΙ ΠΑΤΡΗΣ stems from Homer's Iliad (12:243) and means "to defend one's country". The whole line reads: ηεις οιυος αριστος αμυνεσθαι περι πατρις (One omen is best, to fight for one's country).
