From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
|56 National Olympic Committees|
In the following table, the year in which the NOC was recognised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is also given if it is different from the year in which the NOC was created.
- Between 1954 and 1974, Israel took part in the Asian Games, but political pressure exerted by Arab countries due to the Arab–Israeli conflict led to Israel's exclusion from the re-organized Olympic Council of Asia in 1981 (See Israelis Facing Asian Ban). It then became a member of the European Olympic Committees in 1994.
- The Olympic Committee of Serbia was founded in 1911, as a successor to the Serbian Olympic Club (source).
