A very special sight next to the Finnish flag: “I had to rub my eyes”

Ski fans rubbed their eyes during the Canmore World Cup.

The sight was downright absurd when the flags of the Soviet Union, East Germany and North Korea were flying in Canmore, Canada, in connection with the skiing World Cup event.

Evidence of this was found, for example, in TV broadcasts.

The sight also aroused wonder in, for example, the Swedish camp. Coach of the women’s cross country team Stefan Thomson looked especially at the flag of the Soviet Union.

– It’s been a long time since I’ve seen it. I had to rub my eyes. I didn’t expect to see it here. It felt like the 80s, Thomson said For Expressen.

Then why were the tickets displayed? According to Expressen, the flags of all 36 countries that took part in the Calgary Olympics in 1988 flew in Canmore.

– The tickets represent the world-class competition and heritage that has been seen in Canmore, according to Expressen, it was written next to the tickets.

The capture is still special, because Germany was already united in 1990. The Soviet Union, on the other hand, broke up in 1991, and North Korea has no representatives in the skiing World Cup.
