Giovas Vlachiotis (Greek Γιόβας Βλαχιώτης) was a Greek fighter and contributor in the War of Independence against the Ottoman Empire (1821-1829).

Vlachiotis lived in Syros but hailed from Akarnania. It was at his house in Agrinio that the revolution was declared in that region.

Vlachiotis himself fought and contributed financially to the cause, however, when the Turks recaptured Akarnania, he lost everything. After his death, his son Michail continued the fight.
