If you want to know the answer to that question, then you can check out the flags flying on the plaza outside the lodge at Canada Olympic Park. They are the legacy of the 1988 Winter Games which are fondly remembered by Calgarians...they were the games of Eddie the Eagle and the Jamaican bobsled team.
These flags gather in a semi-circle round one of the Olympic flames used in the '88 and represent every nation that competed. I can identify Canada, USA, Russia, Sweden France and Germany and Jamaica amongst others. It's amazing to think how much the political landscape has shifted in 21 years. I wonder which flags will be flying in the 2010 winter Olympics in Vancouver?
