"Today ahead of the Women’s football match at Hampden Park, the South Korean flag was shown on a big screen video package instead of the North Korean flag. Clearly that is a mistake, we will apologise to the team and the National Olympic Committee and steps will be taken to ensure this does not happen again.”
"Earlier we issued an apology over an unfortunate flag mix up. We now wish to apologise for incorrectly naming the flags, which were of course the flag of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and the flag of the Republic of Korea respectively and not North Korea and South Korea, which clearly do not exist"
"LOCOG wish to issue a further correction and apology in respect of the previous apology. We did not mean to imply that either North Korea or South Korea don't exist and in fact Korea is a single nation under either the flag of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea or the Republic of Korea."
"The National Olympic Committee deplore the movement of tanks across the border at the 38th Parallel and urge the governments of Korea in both Pyongyang and Seoul to exhibit restraint at this time of international tension"
