Here's When Each of the 91 Teams at the 2022 Olympics Walk in the Parade of Nations

The 2022 Winter Olympics kicked off on Friday evening in Beijing with an opening ceremony shrouded in controversy — but despite the unusual circumstances and criticism of these Games, many of the Olympic traditions remain, including the Parade of Nations. For those tuning in to the opening ceremonies in primetime (the broadcast begins at 8 p.m. ET on NBC), we've pulled together a guide listing each of the countries in the order they appear.

This year's Parade of Nations consists of 91 teams who enter Beijing's National Stadium, also known as the "Bird's Nest," behind their country's flag. The procession is organized according to the Chinese language, which does not follow an alphabet. Instead, the order is determined based on the number of strokes in the first character of the countries' names in Chinese, from lowest to highest. As always, Greece enters first and the future and current hosts of the Winter Olympics — Italy and China — round out the ceremony.
