Post Macedonian Flags and Coat of Arms

Грбот на Александар Македонски е присутен во европската традиција од 14 век. Тој е составен дел од групата на девете достојни и се појавува во пет ракописи, досега откриени. Најчеста е преставата на лав, и тоа златен на црвено поле.

На сликава Александар е придружуван од Цезар (Chavalier errant, B.N Paris, 1394)

The coat of Alexander Macedonian is present in european tradition since 14 st. It is part of group ''nine worthy'' and it is showen in five manuscript explored until now. Most time it is present like golden lion on red platform-field

I think it's Julius Ceasar.

The above is very interesting given the yellow and red colours featuring a rampant lion, as this is a medieval symbol of Macedonia.

Quote:
Alexander the Great

Azure a king in his majesty seated on a throne all or (BC)
Or a lion gules armed and langued azure (JB)
Gules two lions or confronting (BC)
Sable a griffon or (HB)
Meaning Alexander was represented with other heraldry also, but predominantly with a lion or lions.

It always starts with Hector and second is Alexander, check the far left, second in line, a red background with two lions (or 3?):

Anybody have anymore information on this topic?

I think it is very interesting given the symbol accompanying Alexander as depicted by northern and western Europeans is almost the same as the medieval symbol of Macedonia.

14th Century - Nine Worthies


16th Century - Korenich Rolls


17th Century - Ohmuchevich
