There have been many sources to Macedonia being a Greek Kingdom in the ancient times but some people think otherwise.

Well let's get started. Now Ancient Macedonia or Macedon was an Ancient Kingdom but 2 countries are fighting over the name and history. The region in Greece called Kentriki Makedonia (Central Macedonia) in Northern Greece and the country FYROM (Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia). Now the people of FYROM claim that Macedonia was a separate country with their own language but in the ancient writing it was never proven to be separate because the same ancient writing is Ancient Greek.

Ok well you forfeited that round but I can still continue. Now in Ancient history, Greece (Ellada) was in a civil war and all regions and city states were attacking each other and Macedon (Macedonia) was one of them.

FYROM (Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia) has been denying that Macedon was a Greek Kingdom. But what is strange is how they deny it when the writing of Macedon was Ancient Greek. Even the ancient artefacts were Greek style with Hellenic charm.

The Vergina Sun which is the Macedonian symbol is another complicated thing, the people of FYROM say that the symbol belongs to them when the meaning of the symbol is also Greek. It says everywhere that the Vergina Sun is part of Greek art since the 6th century BC. The Vergina sun is a star shaped object showing 16 rays around a sun. The 4 big rays represent the elements (Fire, Water, Earth and Air) and the 12 smaller rays represent the 12 Gods of Olympus (Zeus, Posiedon, Athena, etc.)
