    For the Greek business world, Macedonia had and continues tohave a dual nature. In the first place, as an administrative region,it was the seat of their activities. Yet it is more than that. The nameMacedonia and its derivative adjectives are the name of origin oftheir products, with which they have become established in theGreek or international market. At least 50 businesses are namedMacedonia and over 200 define themselves as Macedonian, asemerged from impromptu research mainly in the Thessalonikiarea. A further thirty have chosen the names of Phillip and

    Alexander, the kings of Macedonia, and a few more have in recentyears chosen that of Vergina, site of the Macedonian royal tombs.Many more have included the Macedonian sun, or the figures ofAlexander and Phillip, in their trademark. In the economy sector,it is clear that symbolisms are neither complex nor numerous. Yetit is obvious that all these businesses have always been sure thatthose symbols, whether as pictorial representations or asdefining epithets, clearly refer the purchasers or consumers oftheir services to Greek Macedonia.
