2005 Fun after Flag Ceremony The 2005 highlight was the flag ceremony as each participating country were announced in alphabetical order. The flags were introduced, held high by the team captains of the country represented, and were greeted by a fanfare of cheering and applauding by the audience, everyone proud to be representing their flag. This can be witnessed by the many testimonials we already received. A true “Olympic” feeling was achieved!
The last evening in Turkey was spent in celebration with good food, Turkish entertainment and many prizes provided by the renowned glass-makers Orrefors and Kosta Boda.
