In 2001 it had 1404 residents and the its population increased due to the migration which occurred due to the Turkish invasion in 1974. After the invasion, a new road was built which connected Kokkinotrimithia with Nicosia due to the occupation of a part of the road. This road, assisted in the development of the village.

Village name

The name is made up from two synthetics, Agioi and Trimithias. The first synthetic is a holly name and it witnesses the dedication and the religious faith of the first villagers. The second synthetic is not known exactly how it was given to the village, because the scientist haven’t concluded its origin yet. Today we have many different versions as to the name of the village. The most important is that of Stefanos Vyzantiou who says that the name Trimithia came from the word Trimithi which probably existed in the village.
