Salute your Country’s Flag, name and Team in the London Olympics 2012

Updated on March 22, 2013

Olympic Games are here again, the second most popular sport event after the soccer World Cup. The Olympic Games provides us with an opportunity to celebrate our shared humanity.

It is another chance to express the spirit of sports, a spirit that does know ethnicity, poverty, riches, human race, human color, culture, traditions, languages or religion. Olympic Games gives us the chance to celebrate our shared humanity and human spirit regardless of race or culture.

Every participant in the Olympic is in oneness, united by the Olympic spirit. This spirit can be seen in athletes from different countries of the world.

The athletes in this competition may be from poor countries, resources challenged, with political instability, wars, economic crisis but the fact that these athlete have managed to be in the Olympics explains the honor of Olympic Games.

I can bet that these athletes will represent their countries with pride and dignity. They have left their home comfort, their families, businesses, studies put on hold and many others just to be in the Olympics and represent their country.

Some of them may not be winners in their respective events but they will perform to the best of their ability and with the highest dignity.

As spectators in the Olympic arena or just sitting in front a Television set, we’ll be hoping that these athletes will perform their best and bring honor and dignity back home. It may not occur to us that every athlete will have to struggle against difficulties such as injuries and defeats in order to do so.

Our best moment will be when these athletes win a medal, stand on the podium and the national anthem is played. That feeling we get when the national anthem is played and the whole world stand up and salute the national flag is just awesome.

Send your country team in Olympics a “Wishing you success” message. Start by stating the country name and the flag number.

Whether your country is represented in London Olympic Games or not, salute your national flag and your country team even if they didn't make it to London Olympics. If you can’t sing the national anthem, hum it. If your country team is in London, celebrate and applaud the athletes in as they fly our national flags high.

Feel free to use the comment part and send your country team in Olympics a “Wishing you success” message. Please start by stating the country name and the flag number as shown on the image above. Wherever they are, whichever event they will participate in, they will feel humbled to know someone sent them a well-wishing message. That is the spirit of Olympic Games, applauding all the competitors, and not just the winners.

      I pay very little attention to international sports until the Olympics and then I watch as much of them as possible. I love the competition and learning about other nations and athletes. A marvelous spectacle to be sure.

      #203 USA! Actually I wish all countries and athletes the best of luck. I heard the games could be a wash-out due to all the rain in the UK, but I hope the skies clear up and they get lots of sunshine! Excellent hub!
