What so called Macedonians claim to be their land. It is actually northern Greece. For every city in Macedonia is Greek. Alexander the Great did not really come from this country but from Greece. The Ancient Macedonian flag use to be an Ancient Greek symbol which represents the 12 Greek Gods and Goddesses. This symbol had to be changed three times from the controversy it caused. The Ancient Macedonians spoke GREEK!!! THE CITIES ARE GREEK! MACEDONIA IS GREECE!

Alexander the Great even quoted:
"Your ancestors came from Macedonia and the rest of Hellas (Greece) and did us great harm, Though we had done no prior injury. I have been appointed leader of the Greeks, and wanting to punish the Persians I have come to you Asia, Which I took from you..."
This means that Alexander the Great was Greek. Leader of the Greeks.
Greek: Hey have you noticed that all our cities are named after Ancient Greek Names, The flag itself is Greek, Ancient Macedonians use to speak Greek too, and that Alexander the Great claimed he was leader of the Greeks?

Macedonian: So what does that mean?

Located in the center of Balkan Peninsula, Macedonia is ethnic territory compounded from three parts Vardar, Pirin and Aegean Macedonia
Ancient Macedonian tribes were settled on this territory and were united by the first Macedonian king Macedon. The most known Ancient Macedonian kings are King Philip 2nd who achieved to conquer whole Greece (338 BC, Battle of Chaeronea ), and his son Alexander 3rd the Great (or Alexander 3rd the Macedon) who is one of the biggest conquerer in the history of mankind who achieved to invade 75% of the ancient known world (Persia, Egypt,parts from India etc). Soon after his dead his empire falls apart in smaller regions, kingdoms governed by his generals and their dynasties.
Despite the nowadays Greek possessive propaganda there are many evidence why Ancient Macedonians weren't Greeks:
1. They had their own Macedonian language nothing similar to Ancient Greek (the language is the most important mark of one nation)
2. They never were invited to participate the ancient Olympic Games (the only allowed to compete were the Greeks).
3. They had their own religion.
4. Alexander 1st (5 century BC) was was called "phillhellen" which means "friend of the Greek people". He supplied the Greeks with timber which they desperately need it to build fleet to win the war against the Persians.
5. One of the most known Greek orator and statesman Demosthenes in his speeches called "Philipiki" (against the Macedonian King Philip 2) called the Macedonians a tribe that has no connection with the culturally elated Greece.
The Macedonian region in the 3 century BC falls under Roman rule until the Middle Ages when Macedonian King Samoil creates big kingdom.

Macedonians are mixture from the the Ancient Macedonians and the Slavs who conquered this territory in 6-7 century AD (with the big movement of nations in Europe). This territory was torn apart in 1913 (The Balkan Wars) between the allied Balkan countries (Greece, Serbia, Bulgaria and Albania) which first banished the Ottoman Empire from it's territory (550 years under Turk rule) and then divided it.
Greece invaded Aegean, Serbia Vardar and Bulgaria Pirin Macedonia. Albania invaded small south-western part of its territory
The Republic of Macedonia was formed as socialist Republic in the Yugoslavian Federation from the Vardar part, its full independence achieved in 8 September 1991 after it separated
from the socialist system.
Macedonians and their rich true history.

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.

The Republic of Macedonia is a country located on the Balkan Peninsula in South-Eastern Europe. It is the home of Alexander the Great, and the birthplace of the cyrillic alphabet, and the Orthodox Faith. The people of Macedonia are descendants of the Ancient Macedonians who conquered, persia, the greek city states, egypt, and spread the Macedonian culture throughout 75% of the world.
