Proportions 1:2[1]

The flag of North Macedonia is a rising yellow sun with eight rays extending to the edges of a red field. On 12 February 2019, it was renamed from the Republic of Macedonia to the Republic of North Macedonia, after the Prespa agreement was signed, ending a 27-year naming dispute with Greece.

Symbolism[]

The original national flag of the newly independent Republic of Macedonia was the sun of Vergina in gold on a red field. The flag was deemed unacceptable by neighbouring Greece which perceived the Vergina sun as an exclusively Greek symbol. Macedonia decided to scrap the symbol to be able to open diplomatic and economic relations with Greece. The Vergina sun was replaced by a sun of a different design in 1995, this sun evokes "the new sun of Liberty", as mentioned in the Macedonian national anthem:

Today over Macedonia, is being born

the new sun of liberty.
The Macedonians fight,
for their own rights!
