As soon as i see that new flag i feel division, the only reason i respect it is because the macedonian soldiers died under it in 2001, but i still cant except it.

Wow Dimo i see you like to express things that are in you mind.
Well i have to say i agree in a way with what you have said, the old flag looks more real in the sense it is our real flag first of all and it was the first flag we adopted when we gained independence from Yugoslavia, so its hard just to forget about the old flag.
But we have now accepted the new flag, it is a very good looking flag,
and it is the new sun of liberty, novo sonce na sloboda.

Actually we kind of are Makedonetz. I think it was on MTO or www.mazedonium.org I saw a clip about ancient Macedonian shields. Some had the 16 point sun symble while others had 8 like the currant flag while others had swirling suns. So I guess we kind of are the empire of the sun in the west.

If we chose the new flag, I would have no problem with it.
I like it but cannot say it inspires me in the same way as the old one.

There still remains a lack of Knowledge that the 8 ray Macedonian Sun burst is invented when it clearly is not.

But I understand being forced to change your Countrys adobted Flag is unacceptable and not to be forgottn by EVERYONE.

An evolutionary change of the flag would have been acceptable, but a forced change is wrong.

Im for the old flag.

Personally I would never call the RoM flag a "ventilator", I'll leave that for the greeks

Soldiers have died under that flag, and it's symbolism is relevant to Macedonian history as explained by others, I'll not belittle it in any way

But saying that, RoM choose the 16 ray star at independence, we were forced to change (which is disgraceful to both the Macedonians and the Greeks for different reasons), I would be glad to see it reinstated as the flag of Macedonia, it represents us in a deeply psychological way, all Macedonians love that flag/symbol, it's universally uniting
