North Macedonia Flag
The Republic of North Macedonia's national flag depicts a stylised yellow sun with eight expanding rays on a red field. Miroslav Grev created it, and it was officially adopted on October 5, 1995. The eight-rayed sun symbolizes the “new sun of Liberty” stated in the country's national hymn, “Denes nad Makedonija”.
The flag was designed after a previous design, known as the Kutlesh flag and adopted in 1992, was updated. The initial design incorporated the Vergina Sun, an ancient symbol unearthed at Aigai, the first capital and burial ground of the kings of Macedon, which Greece considered a Greek symbol and hence objected to the flag bearing this symbol. In response, the government changed it with the current design in order to avoid Greece imposing a year-long economic boycott.
