One of the most striking Greek costumes. It is worn in the fifty or so villages of the Roumlouki district in the plain of Yannitsa. The most striking feature of this costume is the unusual headdress (katsouli). It is generally regarded as a sign of pure Hellenic descent and bears a resemblance of an ancient helmet and according to local tradition has been worn since the days of Alexander The Great. The latter in order to reward the women of this district for their gallant conduct during a battle, is said to have bestowed the helmets his men used to wear on them.
