Wednesday/ the flags at the Olympics

China Flag
This is what the Chinese flag should look like : the four little stars are each tilted (they don’t have the same orientation as the big star).

I love the flags that the NBC’s computer-enhanced video shows in the swimlanes at swim events. (It disappears as soon as the swimmers plunge into the pool at the start).

As for the flags that are raised behind the medals podium, I see there is a little flap about the Chinese flag.  The one that they have at the Games is not quite accurate.  The four little stars are not tilted towards the big one.
