We study the evolution under the Ricci flow of surfaces with singularities of cone type. Firstly we provide a complete classification of gradient Ricci solitons on surfaces, which is of independent interest. Secondly, we prove that closed cone surfaces with cone angles less or equal to p converge, up to rescaling, to closed soliton metrics under the Ricci flow.
