During the Parade of Nations at the 2014 Winter Olympics opening ceremony, held beginning at 8:14 PM MST (UTC+4) on February 7, 2014, about 90 athletes bearing the flags of their respective nations will lead their national delegations as they parade into Fisht Olympic Stadium in the host city of Sochi, Russia.
Athletes will enter the stadium in an order dictated by tradition. As the originator of the Olympics, Greece will enter first. The Russian team will enter last, representing the host nation. The names of the nations will be announced first in Russian, the official languages of the host country, followed by French and finally by English the official languages of the Olympic movement. The nations will enter in alphabetic order of their country names in Russian.
