Here you can download an ancient Macedonian royal symbol (Vergina, Vergina Sun, Macedonian/Argead Star, Star of Vergina or Macedonian Star).

This symbol, characterizes Ancient Greece between the 6th and 2nd century BC. However, there is evidence suggesting that it had been used long before that period. As it was found on a case which is considered to have belonged to Philip II of Macedon (father of the Alexander the Great), a lot of archaeologists are apt to believe that it is the symbol of the Argead royal dynasty. Some archaeologists, on the other hand, argue that the rayed solar symbol of the Vergina Sun is merely a simple decoration or a religious symbol. Different versions of it appear in the Ancient Greek art - with 16, 12 or 8 triangular rays.
