[QUOTE=VMRO;176090]Green depicts Islam.[/QUOTE]

Well aware but in this context, Islam would be referring to the Ottoman Empire. As far as the Macedonian peasant was concerned, Islam was merely the religion of the "Turks" and as the colour was used by the administration, it was therefore also the colour of the "Turks"

Correct, At that time religion was still a factor to describe the different segments of the empire.

Islam was the Ottoman Empire at that time, they had most of the important holy sites in the middle East still in 1900.

I believe the closest translation is, "WE ARE CLINGING FOR MACEDONIA"

Pavel Shatev was known to have said the above.

And here's a poster made in [B]Sofia[/B] in the 1930s, depicting the same image in the background but clearly with no Bulgarian tricolour:
