The decision about the taxi colors is taken locally. Take a look at the link for every city http://taxitzhs.blogspot.gr/2012/01/blog-post_7060.html?m=1

"το ταξί είναι κίτρινο αμάξι" is also currently marked as incorrect - if you'd be so kind as to do the honours.

Greece is not only Athens

I don't think the phrase is aiming for Athens here, it's just that yellow is a pretty popular color for taxis.

In other cities of Greece, like Βέροια, Αλεξανδρούπολη, Άργος, Καστοριά, Σέρρες, Κιλκίς, Πρέβεζα, and non Greek cities like New York, taxis are also yellow. ^.^

But here in Greece's most beautiful city, Thessaloniki, they are blue and white

That would be even more specific.. We can't please everyone, can we? xD
