Correct, At that time religion was still a factor to describe the different segments of the empire.

Islam was the Ottoman Empire at that time, they had most of the important holy sites in the middle East still in 1900.



the coat of arms of the Ottoman Empire featured a green flag at left (representing the Caliphate) and red flag at right (representing the Sultanate)

I believe the closest translation is, "WE ARE CLINGING FOR MACEDONIA"

Pavel Shatev was known to have said the above.

To rexamine the potential forgery in some VMRO banners, let's bring up one of the Ohrid ones again.

And here's a poster made in Sofia in the 1930s, depicting the same image in the background but clearly with no Bulgarian tricolour:
