In an increasingly globalized world, where capital circulates at a dizzying pace and where workers freely cross borders to work in different countries, professional athletes and, specifically, Olympic athletes, are not on the fringes of this circulation. And this has been clearly seen once again at the Olympic Games being held these days in Athens.

The Olympic Charter, the charter of the Olympic movement and its regulator, provides for the possibility that participants in the Olympic Games who represent a given country may not originally be nationals of that country. As is logical, in order to represent a country in the Games it is necessary to be a national of that country, for which a series of civil requirements must be met, which are not the object of analysis here. However, it is worth examining in depth the requirements that the Olympic Charter establishes, in addition to the purely civil ones, for the determination of the nationality of a competitor in the Olympic Games.

You’re going to have a good time today. I assure you. Well, the topic of this lesson: countries, nationalities and languages in English, is one of the most entertaining in English. If you don’t believe me, let me explain why.

The first group is the most numerous. That is, if you have doubts about any nationality in English, the statistics will help you to eliminate the doubts. In general, this rule applies to all continents, almost all non-European countries and for some of the old continent. The rest follow the nomenclature that we will show you in the following sections.

Regarding the language, remember that some countries have their own language and others have inherited it. If it is a nation of the first case, the language will be the same as the nationality. Otherwise, they will speak a language unrelated to their nationality.

So… what is a flag? Flags are much more than pieces of cloth, they represent the culture, history and beliefs of a country. In the past, flags symbolized the different human groups that occupied a territory, however, this habit transcended and, when the first countries were established, flags were used as a means to proclaim the dominion of that territory and its sovereignty.

Since then, it is customary for each established country to create its flag with specific colors and symbols that hold an important meaning for that country. Sometimes, if a relevant historical event occurs, flags may change their shape. The most common symbols and shapes in flags are: moons (moons), stars (stars), crosses (crosses), triangles (triangles) and squares (squares).

Here are the flags belonging to the 35 countries located in the American continent (American Flags), both in North America, Central America and South America. You can also find the different flags belonging to the dependencies that are located in this continent.

One of the main issues referring to the athlete in the Olympic Charter and which is the main object of our study is the nationality of the competitors, established in Rule 46 OC and in which it is understood that every competitor in the Olympic Games must have the nationality of the country of the National Olympic Committee that registers him/her and any dispute concerning the determination of the country that a competitor may represent in the Olympic Games will be settled by the IOC Executive Board.

On the other hand, the Olympic Charter also contemplates the case of creation or suppression of new National Olympic Committees from the athlete’s perspective, it being understood that if an associated territory, a province, an overseas department, a country or a colony becomes independent, or if a country is incorporated into another country due to a modification of borders, or if a new NOC is recognized by the IOC, any competitor may continue to represent the country to which he belongs or belonged. However, if he so prefers and chooses, he may represent his country or be entered in the Olympic Games by his new NOC, if one exists, although such a choice may only be made once.
