Barcelona, 1992

While in their home countries fighting was too grim too allow for an Olympic truce, the athletes from countries that once had been part of Yugoslavia took part for the first time under their own flag. Though the remaining part of Yugoslavia was not represented at Barcelona 1992, some individual athletes from Yugoslavia participated as Independent Olympic Athletes. They did not march in the parade of flags, but in award ceremonies for them the Olympic flag was hoisted.

During the opening ceremony in Athens, 2004, many of the teams waved small national flags, mostly paper or plastic flags, frequently printed on one side only. Athlets from Serbia and Montenegro had a national flag with the Olympic rings, in color, placed on the white stripe.
