As reported in the book “Corfu: The Garden Isle”, pp. 124-125: “The Corfu Heritage Foundation’s aim is the preservation of Corfu’s Heritage to which its constitution is dedicated […] The Corfu Heritage Foundation, established in 2000, has been responsible for the introduction and erection of commemorative plaques in town. This scheme, which is similar to the English Blue Plaque equivalent, is the inspiration of Spiro Flamburiari, the Chairman of the Foundation, who established the plaque scheme in 2004. The plaque erected at the Mon Repos Palace commemorates the birth there of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, in 1921.” As a matter of fact, the main purpose of the Corfu Heritage Plaques is educational. Our vision is to disseminate knowledge about local history. This can be taught to students led by teachers in a peripatetic way all along the Corfu Old Town. As indicated above, John Capodistria, Lord North, Count of Guilford, H.R.H. The Duke of Edinburgh, Edward Lear and George Rallis are amongst a great number of personalities covered by the Corfu Heritage Plaques.
