PAS Giannina was formed in 8 July 1966 as a result of the union of the two local teams – AO Ioanninon (union of Atromitos Ioanninon and Olympiacos Ioanninon in 1962) and PAS Averof.[1][2][3] Its colors are blue and white. A bull was chosen as the emblem of the new team, as it appeared on the ancient coin of the Epirote League.
