The country which appears first in the Olympic Parade of Nations is always Greece, because Greece started the Olympic Games thousands of years ago. And the last country to parade is the host country.

For opening parade of athletes in the Olympics, Greece comes in first and the last nation to come in is the host nation. In between come the nations in alphabetical order. For the closing parade, the first and the last nations are the same, Greece and the host nation, but in between, all of the athletes of all the participating nations come in a huge mass and in no particular order. This closing procedure was brought about by an idea of a young Chinese apprentice carpenter living in Australia who wrote to the International Olympics Committee suggesting that all of the athletes mingle in the closing parade. This was officially adopted from the 1956 Melbourne Olympics up to the present.

The countries entered the stadium in alphabetical order (Italian alphabetical order) with the exception of Greece--first country in as the traditional founder of the Olympic games--and Italy, the host country which came in last.

Flags were not in use for nations during the time of the ancient Romans. The only flags used were the military flags used by the cavalry and sometimes by the infantry for parade purposes.Flags were not in use for nations during the time of the ancient Romans.

In the 2012 Parade of Nations, the girls leading each country's athletes were carrying the petal of a giant flower. Its purpose becomes evident at the end. When the games are finished, the flower will be dismantled and each country gets to take a petal home.
