Chinese officials protest that incorrect version of Chinese flag was used at Olympic medal ceremony (also in the opening athlete procession). Turns out the flags were all manufactured in China, a fact they had proudly pointed out a week earlier, and the Chinese delegation had approved the incorrect flag. Oops.
