Yeah I've seen this before, believe it was commissioned by the MPO in its later years. Vic will likely know.

I believe that flag was made long before MPO was created, by Macedonians living in Gary Indiana who volunteered to go back to Macedonia and fight under the Macedonian-Adrianopolitan Volunteer Corps.

According to wikipedia you are correct. Supposedly it is the flag of the 6th Ohrid Battalion. Weird thing is it is the only flag from the corps I've seen to actually depict a Bulgarian flag on it, most of the others seem to just have lions and declarations such as 'autonomous Macedonia' or 'freedom or death'.

Maybe Vic can clarify this, but perhaps groups that received direct funding from Bulgaria were the ones that had Bulgarian symbols on their flags (for example the Ohrid cheta and Kostur cheta flags).

If you're talking about the Ohrid flag further back in this thread, I still believe that to be a forgery as I have provided 3 other images of that flag that do not depict the Bulgarian tricolour. The Kostur flag I believe to just be a straight-up fake, it was "reprinted" by the MPO around a decade ago claiming it to be based off an original that was held by one of their elderly members; they have never provided this supposed original. Don't even get me started on how the flag bares no resemblance to the usual pattern of designs utilised by our revolutionaries.

I'm talking about these. I don't think they were forgeries, if they are then they sure did a superb job.

This one contradicts all other known representations of the Ohrid četa.

As I said previously, there is no "original" of this flag, only a "reprint" which was done in the US around a decade ago.
