Macedonian flags with Vergina Sun removed during NBA match18 November 2013 | 10:09 | FOCUS News Agency
The Macedonian fans were waiting for Macedonian basketball player Pero Antic, who currently plays for the Atlanta Hawks, to start playing in the match when they were ordered to take down the flags.
The Vergina Sun is a politically charged solar symbol and presents a point of conflict mainly between Greece and the Republic of Macedonia. It was discovered during archaeological excavations around the town of Vergina, in Macedonia [a geographic region of Greece], in the late 1970s.
