An ancient country and territory in south-east Europe in the middle of the Balkan Peninsula. In the ancient history, Macedonia was a great empire which reached its peak when Alexander of the Macedonians with his army shortly crossed the boundaries of India. Sadly, there's one nationalistic and scientificly unproven belief that Macedonians were Greeks. This can't be true because of several reasons:

Scientific proofs show:
1. Macedonians had different religion than Greeks - different gods;
2. Macedonians had different style of life - most notably Macedonians were eating while sitting and Greeks were eating while laying;
3. Macedonians never were in peace with the Greeks so it doesn't seem logical if they were the same nation to always fight among themselves;
4. Macedonians had language different language than the Greeks, the only remaining from that language are around 200 words - "glosi" which have no corespondation with the Greek language. So this is the strongest proof, different language - different nation.
5. Even in the history of the ancient Greeks, Macedonians were hated by the Greeks because of their superiority and also they were always named Macedonians, never Greeks.

Since the decay of the Macedonian Empire until today, Macedonia had almost never been fully reunited by Macedonians. Because of its perfect location as a crossroad of the Balkan Peninsula and beacuse of its many natural beauties, Macedonia has always been primary target of foreign occupators (most notably: Rome - 5 centuries, Byzantine Empire, Turkish Empire - 5 centuries). In august 1913, on the Bucharest's peace conferation, Macedonia was taken away from Turkey and divided between Greece, Serbia, Bulgaria and Albania in the order of amount od territory. Macedonians in these occupied territories, had literaly NO RIGHTS granted. The occupators ignored the Macedonian nation, Macedonian language, Macedonian culture, etc, forbidding the usage of these elements. These kind of regimes are in no ways less cruel than the nazi regime. This kind of regime goes on today in all parts of Macedonia, except in the Vardar part of Macedonia. In 1944, in the Vardar part of Macedonia, Republic of Macedonia was formed as a part of the Yugoslav Federation. In 1991, Republic of Macedonia has achieved its full independence. Under liberate conditions, as the ones in Republic of Macedonia, Macedonians aren't affraid to claim their natioanl identity as Macedonians - true descendants of the ancient Macedonians. True descendants of the ancient Macedonians are the majority in the whole ancient Macedonian territory, but they are under strong regime and aren't allowed to claim themselves as Macedonians. If a country occupies another nation, it has no right to steal it's history and claim it as it's own, like Greeks and Bulgarians do to Macedonians.
Macedonians, the only true descendants of the great ancient Macedonians, are the majority of the whole Macedonia, but are admited as Macedonians only in Republic of Macedonia - the only true descendant of the great Macedonian Empire. Other countries which currently contain parts of Macedonia are just foreign occupators implementing nazi regimes.

Macedonia is a country in Eastern Europe. Macedonia is the land of the Macedonian Kings such as the greatest conquerer the world has ever known - Alexander the Great and his dad Philip King of Macedon.

Alexander the great spread Macedonian Culture in all parts of Europe. 10,000 Ancient Macedonians Killed 15,000 Greeks, Its sums it up doesn't it? Macedonians are Barbaric and Greeks are not.

Alexander the great of Macedonia Died in India at a young age.

Greek: I'm Macedonian
Macedonian: Alright kako si?
Greek: Whats that Mean?
Macedonian: You should know its in Macedonian Not Greek. Funny how the Greeks love the Name Macedonia but denied the existence of Macedonia.

And by the way if Macedonia has forever been Greek then why did the Greeks denie the existence of Macedonia in the early 90's? If it was Greek it would Have been on the Greek Map and would have always been their not just written their by a crony historian.

The Greeks are afraid to Realize that it was the Macedonians that went to India and not them! Long Live Macedonia Alexander always will be our hero Macedonian.

Macedonia is an identity, that hold out to this day the pressure from all people around Macedonian land. Bulgarians adopted the language (they spoked Bulgarian witch is now forgotten).Greeks abuse the great heart of Alexander the Macedonian and the fact that he spread the Hellenic language, instead of his own Macedonian language.Macedonia lives in the hearts of Macedonians and there is no power that can change that.
Today's Macedonian language, in the Republic of Macedonia,(also in Bulgaria, Serbia and all slav countries)have Antic Macedonian root- Old Macedonian language.
This fact is described in the work of prof. Aristotel Tentov

Makedonija(macedonia) is a beautiful country torn appart by greeks and albanians who claim our(the people of macedonia)land and historiy to be their own.For example Alexander the Great did not like the greeks his father King Philip(Filip) counquerd the greeks and gave Alexander the control of the greeks when he died,The greeks in alexanders army were at the bottom of the ranks no macedonian was below a greek.i have plenty more to say but it will take me all night to write about it,also what is greece now was macedonia in the past making it our land anything found on it is our history eg. the old macedonian flag the verginian sun was stolen by the greeks not soo long ago because they found a tomb of a past king of macedonia with the verginian sun all over his tomb, the greeks now ]claimed] ths symbol as their own because it was found in modern-day greece(ancient macedonia). soo now the macedonians were forced to change their flag. ohh and albanians stink get out of our country shiptari.

An ancient country plagued with political instability and war in the 19th and 20th centuries, only to have its southern most territory annexed by Greece. Its name, flag and history has recently come under intense scrutiny by Greece in an attempt to take Macedonian culture as their own.
