Default Flag of Socialist Macedonia

Starting this thread to find out why the flag of Socialist Macedonia did not posses any actual Macedonian symbolism unlike the other republics which at least had their "national" colours. Any information should be posted under this thread.

I believe no one can tell with certainty, but in my opinion the communists saw the Macedonian lion as a symbol of monarchy and refused to use it, and since the Kutlesh Star hadn't been discovered yet, they decided to put the party flag as the country flag. Anyone has another theory?

I've read in these forums that when Greece discovered the star in the 1970's they had no idea what is was but that the star had been appearing in Macedonia for centuries and that the Republic knew about it and what it meant. Supposedly there was a VMRO banner with so not sure if that's the reason the star wasn't used.

Any idea if a different flag was used for the proclamation of a Macedonian republic in 1944? Is it possible that the flag that we ended up with was only introduced later when the state was reorganised into a socialist republic of the Yugoslav federation?
