Dear Members of the Reconvened IRT,
We herewith wish to request that the list of reserved National Red Cross and Red Crescent identifiers for the Red Cross of the Republic of North Macedonia (formally known as the “Macedonia Red Cross”) be revised and complemented. These additions to the reserved names list are requested in order to reflect the recent change in the official name of the “Red Cross of the Republic of North Macedonia”, as decided upon by the National Society’s Assembly on 25 June 2019).
As agreed in past calls of the IRT, we request that the set of names already included in the reserved list for this National Society (i.e. the names “Macedonia Red Cross” and “Red Cross of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia” and their agreed variations) be maintained in the reserved names list. This is mindful of the fact that the National Society will continue to be known by its old names in the foreseeable future.
The revised table of identifiers for this National Society, as attached to this message, includes a total of thirty six (36) names:
- eight (20) that were included in our initial submission (in black ink), plus
- sixteen (16) additional names (in blue ink).
We are also attaching herewith a copy of the Red Cross of North Macedonia’s Facebook page illustrating that the National Society’s new name is in use.
Thank you for your assistance and kind attention,
