Flag-Raising Ceremony

Come and see the official flag raising for the 2020 Youth Olympic Games!

Let’s get together on Thursday, September 19, from 18h, at the Maison des Congrès in Les Diablerets. Discover the detailed program below! Raclette and beverages to toast the occasion will be offered at the end of the ceremony.

We are excited to be part of the initiative ‘one flag for the 2020 YOG in each municipality of the canton’. Earlier on the 19th, 612 students from the Vaudois municipalities will meet at the Stade Pierre de Coubertin in Lausanne to kick off the flag-raising ceremony. They will enter the stadium with the flags of all the communes, and will take their corresponding place on a map of the Canton of Vaud marked on the ground. They will then replace the communal flag with an official flag of the YOG 2020. A choreography representing winter sports will be performed by 2,020 students from the Lausanne region. At the end of this ceremony, the 612 students will return to their commune to hoist the flag of the YOG 2020.
