The Parade of Flags

During the Openings Ceremony all the teams paraded into the stadium behind their flags, and during the Closing Ceremony the flags did so once more. The flags and teams paraded in alphabetical order according to the language of the host country, except for Greece as the origin of the Olympic Games which always leads the parade, and Australia as the host country which closed the parade. The flags themselves all have the same size, and all have the ratio 2:3. For the flag of Nepal, which isn't rectangular, this ratio is used for the hoist and the bottom.
The millions watching the Opening Ceremony saw the flags and athletes enter the stadium in this order:
