Already, the botched flag has been a source of public disappointment among Chinese netizens and viewers.Netizens began to complain about the flags over the weekend, astutely pointing out that the flags flying at Olympic venues featured the four smaller stars of the Chinese flag laid out in a parallel pattern. Instead, the stars should be rotated so that each one points toward the center of the flags one large star.Under instruction from the Chinese ambassador to Brazil, the Chinese Consul General in Rio, Song Yang, contacted the organizing committee of the Rio Olympic Games and demanded that the mistake be rectified immediately, the consulate said on its official Weibo early on Aug. 8.“[The director] said the organizing committee of the Rio Olympic Games expresses their apologies. The committee commissioned a third-party company (not a Chinese company) to produce all national flags. It will contact the company immediately to correct its mistake,” the Weibo post noted.All national flags used at the Rio Olympic Games received approval from the organizing committees of each respective country, the Rio Olympics organizing committee told People’s Daily in an exclusive interview, adding that the committee will work together with the Chinese delegation to come up with a satisfactory solution. (For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Editor: Jiang Jie,Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9096938;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.We RecommendSpectacular bridge with one of the tallest piers in the world
