HS ATLAS Ι (Α-471)


The coat of arms of the General Support Ship HS ATLAS I shows the Titan Atlas carrying the Celestial dome on his shoulders and a trireme is depicted on the Celestial dome. Atlas was the son of Titan Iapetus and Oceanid Clymene. During the Battle of the Titans (Titanomachy), Atlas opposed the almighty Zeus. He became the leader of the Titanides, the sons of the Titans, as he proved to be the strongest of all. However, when the battle ended with a victory of Zeus, the leader of the gods punished Atlas for the contempt he showed him, and in order to avenge him, he forced him to carry on his shoulders the Celestial dome.
