Flag of the Ilinden Society - Image by Ivan Sache, 21 June 2010, after an image communicated by the association's President to Valentin Poposki
The Macedonian Ilinden Society (website), based in Tirana, has for main goal to protect the ethnic and linguistic specificity of the Macedonians living in Tirana and in Golo Brdo.
Valentin Poposki, 6 June 2010
The flag of the Ilinden Society is red with the emblem of the society in the middle.
The emblem of the society is made of the Sun of Vergina, with the edelweiss flower in the middle, above a yellow scroll with the name and location of the society in Macedonian (Друштво Илинден - Тирана), below a yellow ribbon with the name and location of the society in Albanian (Shoqata Ilinden - Tirana).
The flag is shown on a dedicated page of the society's website. On the image gallery of the society's website, however, the only flag shown in the former Macedonian flag (red with the Sun of Vergina without the edelweiss in the middle).
The society's statutes prescribe a seal (Article 28) but there is no reference to a flag.
