Parade of Nations

The flag bearers of 78 National Olympic Committees entered Rice–Eccles Stadium informally in single file, ordered by the English alphabet. Behind them marched all the athletes, with no grouping by nationality accompanied by music directed by Mark Watters.

Speeches, closing and flag handover

SLOC President Mitt Romney delivered a speech, thanking everyone. IOC President Jacques Rogge delivered a speech, awarding the Olympic Order in Gold to Romney and declared the Games closed. The Mayor of Salt Lake City Rocky Anderson handed the Olympic flag to Rogge, who then handed it to the Mayor of Torino, Sergio Chiamparino, in preparation for the 2006 Olympics.
