Parade of 2016 Summer Olympics Participants
The opening ceremony of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games, which will take place on the evening of August 5 in the Maracanã Stadium of Rio de Janeiro, will see a parade of the Olympic participants.

Adhering to the Olympic Charter, the delegations from all the participating nations will parade in alphabetical order (according to Portuguese language) of their names.

Greece, like every other Olympics, will lead the parade. Since Brazil is the host nation, it is the last delegation in the parade. Each delegation will be preceded by a name-board with country's name and national flag.

This tradition started from the IX Olympiad at Amsterdam in 1928. Each flag-bearer will be chosen either by the nation's National Olympic Committee or by the athletes themselves.
Below is a list of parading countries and their announced flag bearer in the same order as the parade.
