PAEEK (Greek:Podosfairiki Athlitiki Enosi Eparchias Kerynias = "Football Athletic Union of Kyrenia province") is a Cypriot sports club founded in Kyrenia in 1953 by graduates of Kyrenia Gymnasium.
PAEEK now play in exile in Nicosia since the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in July 1974.
In the past they competed in the Cypriot Second Division, they have since been in decline and currently compete in the Cyprus 3rd division.
The colours of PAEEK are symbolically black and white. Black symbolising mourning since the Turkish invasion in 1974 and white symbolising the hope that one day this team will return to its hometown. When this happens, the colours will revert to yellow and black as they were before the Turkish invasion.
