Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis visits the area of a crushed wagon after a train accident in the Tempi Valley near Larissa, Greece, March 1, 2023.  There's an unidentified flag with a white field in the photograph. Could it be a medical flag of some kind?

The flag belongs to the Hellenic Fire Service.

The flag appears to show the logo of the Hellenic Fire Service centered on a white field, proportioned approximately 2:3.

The inscription transliterated is "Pyrosbestiko Soma Ella's, which means something like "Greek Firebrigade Corps" or "Greek Firebrigade Corporation." "Soma" literally is "body."
Klaus-Michael Schneider, 4 March 2023
The correct name is Hellenic Fire Service.
I am preparing a piece on all these Units and I hope I can send it tomorrow, since it covers all "first-responders," which are coordinated under the Ministry of Climate Crisis and Civil Protection and its "operational command," the National Coordinating Center for Operations and Crisis Management.

It could also be "Fire Brigade of Greece" because Elladas means more "of Greece" than "Greek/Hellenic" (which is Elliniki).
