The 2014 Winter Olympics, officially known as the XXII Olympic Winter Games, are being held in Sochi, Russia, from February 06 to 23. Over 2,500 athletes representing 88 nations are competing for medals in 98 events in 15 winter sports. Sochi was chosen in 2007 as the host city for the 2014 Winter Olympics and Winter Paralympics. This is the first time that the Russian Federation hosts the Winter Olympics.

The Flag

Its flag is white, with its very simple logo. The logo for the winter games features the web address "", with the "Sochi" placed on top of the "2014″, typographically mirroring each other, which is meant to reflect that Sochi is the meeting point between the sea and the mountains. The Olympic rings sit in their original colours beside the web address. The letters are blue. Russian Internet domain extension underlines the innovative character of the games and its relevance for the whole country. This logo was introduced on November 30, 2009 as an Olympic logo for Sochi Winter Olympic Games.

Sochi Olympics Torch Relay Flag

I found an interesting and unique flag. During the Olympic torch relay, a specially-designed flag was flown by escorts of the Olympic flame. It is white with red-orange decorations in top left and lower fly corners. The domain name emblem is placed in the middle of the flag under a torch-like design. The Russian text of "Эстафета Олимпийского огня" (Olympic Torch Relay) is written under the emblem.

This flag possibly flown in space as well, at least there is an image of this flag taken after landing the crew who carried it into space. Please see:
