Flogita, is a coastal village in the Greek prefecture of Chalkidiki, 52 km from Thessaloniki and 6 km from Nea Moudania. The village, in the municipality of Nea Propontida, is built on a hill overlooking the Thermaikos Gulf. Most of the village is only a few minutes from the sea, and on a clear day, there is a wonderful view across the bay to Mount Olympus. Flogita was founded in 1923, when refugees fleeing the Anatolian destruction in Cappadocia assembled to build New Flogita. Flogita has 1520 permanent residents. This number increases hugely in the summer months, when visitor numbers raise the population to 20,000.
