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.

THe order used is that of the Grecian alphabet, that of the host nation. This moves St. Lucia and Egypt to the to.

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.
