Think about it.
Ouch!
By far the best reply I've seen in weeks.
Bullseye.

Sorry to dissapoint you all guys greece has been relentless on macedonia since the balkan wars.Greece had not a valid claim as macedonia was divided up into 3 partitions.
So greece has been raining it's propaganda on macedonia since 1913 to the present

Hi guys. Isn't the symbol the sun with the flower of life in the middle?
I notice the sun symbol and flower symbol in the ancient cultures in Macedonia.
I just assumed the royal family put these two symbols together, with a more stylish sun symbol. Is their any books or articles to read about on the topic of the flag?

Sun symbol at the Sveti Ǵeorǵi Church in the village of Ljaski, Nevrokopsko. The church is dated to 1844 though it may actually be older. There were a couple other sun symbols but this was the most pronounced.

- Nicholas Hammond is the man who suggested Vergina/Kutlesh to Manolis Andronikos as the place where the ancient capital of the first Macedonians was. He deposits the following in his works: ''… the open cup, introduced in Macedonia in 8th BC century, that has flat projecting rim and 2 or 4 piercings through it (rim), became fashionable at that time. Both these forms of cup with 2 or 4 holes seem to copy wooden cups; such (wooden) cups are made even today by Vlach/Aromanian shepherds of Northern Greece…"

- Elsewhere, he observes that female figures of headstones of ancient Macedonia are illustrated with interesting details, in particular in heavy woollen clothes and cloaks; such clothes and cloaks are the nowadays Aromanian capes.

- Alexander the Great is represented in a myth from Metsovo as a ram (male sheep) at daylight and as a handsome young man at night, an element related to Alexander as the son of Ammon Zeus, the highest god with ram horns; it should be noted that Alexander the Great was illustrated with ram horns on the coins (currencies) of the ancient era.

- The type of headband in the traditional costume of women from Gramousta and that one of women from Kalash, descendants of Alexander the Great's soldiers in NW Pakistan, show many similarities.

- The Macedonians’ Star (Sun) was not absent from Aromanians’ culture. The eight-rays Sun (star) of ancient Macedonia embroidered in the traditional fez (hat) of the women traditional costume of Negush (town in Macedonia), the same way there is also (in a painting) the similar star on a fez (hat) of an old man from Metsovo. This particular painting was made four or five years before Andronicus’ discoveries in Vergina (the date was written on the painting). Women from Fourka (Aromanian village in Epirus) embroidered eight-rays star on their bust (dress).

Interesting stuff Carlin, is the above from Hammond? Are there photos of these fez hats with the sun?

No photos unfortunately. I do believe this comes from Hammond (from one of his "Macedonia" books) - it's material/quotes that is circulating online.

The Macedonians have used the Macedonian sun throughout history even in churches built in the 1200’s, to the modern Macedonians using it in the 1700’s/1800’s as Macedonian sun has been cultural symbol of the ethnic Macedonians since ancient times through the Macedonian sun representing the Macedonian tribes of Ancient Macedonia, showcasing that it’s a Macedonian symbol.

I’m interested as to why the Macedonian sun also features in some Ancient Greek art. Does anyone know why this was the case when it was the cultural symbol of the Macedonians and not the Greeks? Was it possibly due to the Macedonian invasion of the Greek city states and the Greeks drawing Macedonians as aggressors featuring the Macedonian symbol in order to distinctively prove the aggressors were the Macedonians? Or it could even be the Macedonians themselves spreading their cultural symbol wherever they pleased to show the Macedonians have been many places.

I’m not sure and I want to know if anyone here has any information about it.
