The Olympics are always mired in controversy, and the Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro are no different ― Brazil itself is in complete and utter turmoil, a lot of people are asking how these games are even happening this year.
Some of this controversy has focused on Team USA’s parade uniforms, designed by Polo Ralph Lauren, which total a whopping price tag of $1,512.50). As soon as the U.S. team’s parade uniforms were announced, the internet was quick to point out how parts of it resemble the stripes on the Russian flag.
But no one seemed worried about the controversy at the Opening Ceremony, instead celebrating their respective countries in style as they walked the Parade of Nations. Check out Canada’s blazing maple leaves, Croatia’s bold checkers, and Chile’s ... well, bold choice.
