UEFA flag and emblem

[UEFA emblem]
image by Juan Manuel Gabino Villascán, July 2005.

The 61st FIFA congress was held at Hellenstadion in Zurich, Switzerland on 31 May - 01 June 2011 (www.fifa.com). Flags of the 208 member associations plus those of FIFA six continental confederations, International Olympic Committee, United Nations and FIFA itself were hoisted on the ceiling of Hellenstadion convention center.
Out of the photo gallery published by FIFA in its official website, I share the following notes:
- Chinese Taipei flag was a blue one with old association's emblem: plum blosoom with sun, ying-yang and footballs.
- The Curazao flag (blue with yellow stripe and white stars) is already hoisted, there is no flag for the defunc Netherlands Antilles.
- The Somalia flag was hoisted upside-down, e.g. downwar five-pointed star.
- The OFC flag is white withe the new emblem and abbreviation.
- The AFC flag is white.
- The UEFA flag is blue with the confederation's emblem
- The CONCACAF is white.
- The CAF flag bears the new logo on white background.
