The flag of North Macedonia features a vibrant red field with a large yellow sun in the center, adorned with eight broadening rays extending from the center to the edges of the flag. The red base symbolizes the bravery and valor of the Macedonian people throughout history. The golden sun with its radiant beams represents the new dawn of independence and the bright future of the nation. Additionally, the sun evokes the ancient symbol of the Vergina Sun, a motif associated with the ancient kingdom of Macedonia.
Adopted in 1995, the flag stands as a powerful emblem of national identity, resilience, and aspirations for a prosperous future.
