Flag of North Macedonia (GIF)


The Macedonian flag is a red flag with the sun in the middle, where the eight lights of the sun extend to the edge of the flag. Red is one of the traditional colors of Slavic Macedonia. The eight-ray sun represents the "new sun of freedom," referring to the national anthem of the Republic of Northern Macedonia. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on October 5, 1995.

Its wreath-shaped emblem is surrounded by ears of wheat, tobacco leaves, opium poppy fruits, and a ribbon decorated with traditional motifs. In the middle of the emblem are the Shar Mountains (or Mount Korab), the Vardar River, or Lake Ohrid, and a rising sun, symbolizing freedom.

The North Macedonia flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
North Macedonia, officially the Republic of North Macedonia, is a country in the Balkan Peninsula in Southeast Europe. Its capital is Skopje, and its population is about 2,104,000.
