Photographer's Note

The National Archaeological Museum and other buildings around Skopje are only lit in these national yellow and red colors of the Macedonian FYR flag for just one day a year. 8 December 2015 was St. Clement of Ohrid Day, a national holiday. The statues are of the boatmen (Гемиџиите) of Thessaloniki, a national terrorist group who sought independence from their Ottoman overlords through bombings in Salonika in 1903. More information on the revolutionaries here:
