The flag of Macedonia, designed by Miroslav Grčev

Miroslav Grčev (Macedonian: Мирослав Грчев; born 1955) is a Macedonian architect, graphic designer, and caricaturist. He is known for having designed the current flag of the Republic of Macedonia and a popular proposal for a new coat of arms of the Republic of Macedonia.[1]

Grčev was born in Skopje, Yugoslavia, and started to become interested in graphic design in the mid-1970s, when he worked on the design of LP records. In 1979, Grčev graduated from the Faculty of Architecture in Skopje. Today, he teaches as a professor of urban planning at the Faculty of Architecture in Skopje.

Miroslav Grčev was mayor of central Skopje municipality "Centar" in 1996-2000 from Social Democratic Union of Macedonia. He is one of the most ardent critics of the identity policy of "antiquization" and of the associated urban plan Skopje 2014, carried out by the Macedonian governments after 2006.[2]

At 26 December 2014, he promoted his collection of articles, published between 2006 and 2014, under the title „Името на злото“ ("The Name of the Evil").[3][4]
