Everybody seems to say just because the greeks discovered the star of kutlesh that it's the only place that it appears.The star of kutlesh appears everywhere in ROM in churches on gravestones everywhere.Also the golden larnarx god casket with the16 ray sun is supposed to be exclusive to the greek find in kutlesh.That's totally wrong in germany they have a gold larnax exactly like the kutlesh one found on ROM territory during the 2nd world war & taken to germany by the nazis.To what extent are the greeks prepared to falsify macedoonian history.Well only recently on ROM territory was found a macedonian army helmet.The greeks said they were prepared to pay 1million marks to buy it so that they can say they found it on greek territory.Lucky the people didn't sell it to them.I wonder how much material has gone from ROM teritory to greece like that.

The topic of the Greek flag has got to be one of the most trivial sujbects I have come across. Half of Europe has the tri-color, Russia changed theirs from the hammer and sickle to the tri-color as well. The Turks have the Crescent and Star which also have inspired theories from Sumerian, Greek, Mongol etc. Who cares ?

George, The sunburst is a politcally motivated subject between Greece and ROM. It has been commonly used by the ancient Greeks. The Andronikos arguement is part of the propaganda war between both countries. Below is a Spartan Amphoreus 6th century BC at the Louvre Museum. Many other examples exist throughout the ancient Greek world. It is just as Greek as Macedonian. Its been done to death and quite frankly trivial as well. I personally prefer it in Blue but its also nice in Red.

These sun or starburst symbols have also been found on artefacts in Thrace. The point here is that only the Macedonians used it as a national symbol, while others used it for decorating pottery.

Anyway, this thead is in relation to the shabby origins of the modern Greek flag, and it shouldn't be diverted to the original Macedonian flag (or the shabby origins of the newly imposed Macedonian flag).

Symbols like crescent, star, sun and various animal forms usually comes from antiquity when people was pagans or shamans who admired to the objects in the sky or to some animals.

On the other hand, dual or tri-color flags are modern interpretations. If you check flags of historical states like Romans or early germanic states, all of them contains either sky objects or various animals, none of them are like today`s tri-color flags.

So, this makes the flag of Greece as rather a modern interpretation.

Supposedly the 9 stripes on the Greek flag are a syllabic representation of 'Eleitheria i Thanatos' (Freedom or Death). Talk about clutching at straws.

Also noticed similarities with the Malaysian flag, which apparently is an adoptation of the British East India Company flag.
