Macedonia is the largest and second most populous region of Greece. Macedonia is divided into three peripheries - West, Central and East Macedonia, comprising thirteen prefectures or nomoi. It covers an area of some 34,231 km² (13,217 square miles) and it has a population of 2,625,681.Its capital and largest city is Thessaloniki. The Greeks who live there are called Macedonians. The name probably derives from the greek adjective makednós, meaning "tall".

There is no such country as Macedonia, everybody, who has some knowldge of history, knows that it is an artificially created country and that all Macedonians are pure Bugarians, because Macedonia has always been Bulgarian land. By the way, Samuel IS a BULGARIAN tzar and has nothing to do with that invented country.
What do you get when a Macedonian takes a bath?
A clean Bulgarian and some dirty water.

Macedonia was the name of the kingdom in Northern Greece that became the most powerful empire in the ancient world after Alexander the Great conquered most of the known world and enlightend the far corners of the earth with Hellenic civilization. Macedonia was is and always will be greek. Macedonia was the birthplace of Alexander, who was educated by Aristotle. The contribution of Macedonia was so great that people who know nothing about history attempt to lay false claims about the hellenic legacy of macedonia , because they burn with envy. Macedonians are the greeks that come from Northern Greece , like the city of Thessaloniki. If you are from FYROM (skopje) then you are not macedonian , you are a slav.
Slav : im Macedonian
Greek : really im Macedonian too , do you speak greek?
Slav : no
Greek : then your not Macedonian , your a slav from Skopje

(This is a copy/paste that i found on the net, it comes from an official letter from Governor George Ryan..Google the name Gyordan Veselinov if you dont believe me)

In an interview with the Ottawa Citizen on February 24th 1999, Gyordan Veselinov, FYROM’s Amb. to Canada admitted “We are not related to the northern Greeks who produced leaders like Philip and Alexander the Great. We are a Slav people and our language is closely related to Bulgarian.” He also commented that, “There is some confusion about the identity of the people of our Country.” Also, he related; “In 1995 my Country agreed to remove the Greek symbol from its flag and modify the controversial phrases in the Constitution.” February 26 1992: FYROM’s President Gligorov at a interview reported by the Foreign Information Service, Daily Report, Eastern Europe, stated: “We are Slavs, who came to this region in the sixth century. We are not descendants of the ancient Macedonians.”

Who's trully Macedonian now, you pathetic slav retards?
Macedonia is Greek, as it has been for 2000 years, when Slavs didn't even exist as a race..

A cultural and historical region of northern GREECE! No association with FYROM! If you refer to FYROM as Macedonia you are wrong, very.
Proof: Alexander the Great was Greek and spoke Greek. Everything from ancient Macedonia is in Greece! There is one Macedonia and that Macedonia is 100% GREEK!

It’s a Greek Province in which the city of Thessaloniki is capital.

A handful of Slavo-bulgarian-Scopian- Vardaskans have stolen the province name from Greece to name their country Macedonia. The Scopian Government is leading the world to believe that Greek Macedonian is not Greek, but Macedonian.

The Scopians have no proof to prove that they have a direct connection with Ancient Macedonia of Greece and also believe they have a direct connection with Alexander the Great which is by default not true as the Vardaskans (today’s fake Macedonians) appeared in area of Vardaska 5-6 centuries after Alexander the Great.
The Fake Macedonians use extreme propaganda mechanisms without substantiated material and use people’s historical ignorance to persuade that their history is Macedonian and not Greek. Non Greeks of the world and modern scholars have proven that the Fake Macedonian calls are inventions of a greater plan to divide the Balkans into fragments.
Macedonia is a Greek province and FYROM is a Vardaskan original with Slavs who have no direct connection with Greece, Macedonia and its people of Greece. Scopians are of Slav-Bulgarian origins that have neglected their history and are claiming another countries history (Greece) for their own benefits and hidden agenda.
I'm a macedonian from Macedonia..

no you are not... you are a Slav from Bulgaria wanting another countries hisory because TITO created you in 1944.
