the question here.)

It should be "Kokkini" (with 2 k's in the middle) actually. 

It's indeed Greek and means 'red zita', where zita is the name in
modern Greek for the character traditionally known as 'zeta'. So
I'll be using a red zeta as a logo.

There some word play involved as well. Zita is also a girl's name,
and there exists a Flemish comic series in which a character called
'rode Zita' (red Zita) appears. She's the red-haired and voluptuous
girlfriend of the hero - a sort of Robin Hood like character whose
gang of outcasts is constantly pestering the French soldiers that
occupied Flanders 200 years ago.


Lascia la spina, cogli la rosa.
