Thus the original colour scheme of the flag being a green backdrop with a red lion is highly improbable. Having red desaturate darker than green is achievable, but not without using ridiculously unrealistic colour schemes which have no exemplary archetype in any of the flags posted in this thread.
When was the Ilinden magazine published, 1920s? If technology back then yielded the same results as today's, then I agree with your post above.
