Where do you think it is of, then? For now, we'll replace it with a picture of a church on the shore of Lake Ohrid, that is most definitely North Macedonian!

I think "Vergina sun" should be accepted for the object depicted on the flag. Seems silly to punish those who know the full name of the iconography in question.

We hadn't heard of that term before! We'll get that updated so that that is also accepted.

This is quiz is insulting to all Greeks. Alexander the Great and his father Philip have nothing to do with this country. NOTHING. And the Vergina Star is also stolen from the correct Macedonian flag (the Greek one). Search in Google Greek Macedonian flag and you will understand what I mean.

I thought you'd be rather pleased that Alexander the Great conquered what is now North Macedonia. New Zealand has stolen the UK's Union Flag and put it into its own one, but the UK isn't bothered in the slightest.

im pretty sure macedonian uses the cyrillic alphabet, as opposed to being derived from it, i triedocs and like 50 spellings of phoenician because i thought it meant what the cyrillic alphabet came from which macedonian uses, maybe change the wording a bit.

The Macedonian alphabet was only standardised relatively recently - in 1945 - and omits several letters of the Russian Cyrillic alphabet like Я (ya) and Э (e), while introducing several letters of its own: Ѓ (pronounced gia), Ќ (kia), Ѕ (dz), Ј (y), Љ (lia), Њ (nia) and Џ (j).
