The flag of Didim (photo) is white with the municipality's emblem, which features two columns representing the ruins of Didyma, the major Anatolian sanctuary dedicated to Apollo. "Belediyesi" means "Municipality".Didyma was originally a pre-Greek cult center with a spring and sacred grove. The Ionian Greeks adopted and Hellenized the center and by the 7th century B.C. the fame of its oracle had spread to as far as Egypt. The earliest temple of Apollo on the site was an unroofed Ionic building enclosing the sacred spring and a Naiskos. It was completed in the first half of the 6th century B.C. A second and larger temple on the same spot was destroyed by the Persians early in the 5th century B.C. while it was still under construction.
