Flag of Macedonia 🇲🇰

Flag of Macedonia

The flag of the Republic of Macedonia 🇲🇰 was selected on the basis of a public competition in 1995. The flag consists of motif of a yellow sun with six axially symmetrical rays expanding towards the edges of the flag placed on a red background. Originally, the flag with motif of a vergin sun was selected and it was used between the years 1992 and 1995, but it was eventually abandoned since the Greeks opposed. They regarded this symbol purely Hellenic. moreover, it already was a symbol of Greek province of Macedonia. Opinions on this matter differ - some argue that the symbol occurred much earlier in the Persian and other ancient empires, but the Greeks still won this dispute, and Macedonians eventually turned to the current flag.
