ATHENS (Reuter) - Greece said yesterday it was considering adopting the symbol of ancient Macedonia as a new national emblem - a move likely further to complicate relations with the former Yugoslav republic of Macedonia. Interior Ministry officials said government deputies would put a draft bill proposing the move to parliament later this month. The former Yugoslav republic last year adopted the 16-ray sun for its own emblem and flag.
