During the Parade of Nations section of the 1994 Winter Olympics opening ceremony, athletes from each country participating in the Olympics paraded in the arena, preceded by name board bearers with a couple between them, and also the country flag. The flag was borne by a sportsperson from that country chosen either by the National Olympic Committee or by the athletes themselves to represent their country. The Parade of Nations was organized according to the Norwegian alphabet. As usual, Greece leads the parade, followed by American Samoa. Mongolia didn't march in the parade, but still compete in the Games.[1] The announcers welcomed the country in their respective main language, Norwegian, English, and lastly French.[2]
