IAWA Flags

IAWA Banner

A while back on the IAWA(UK) Facebook page Steve Gardner posed this question to the membership, “How many countries have been represented in IAWA competitions over the past 25 years?”  This may include just 1 lifter from any given country.  Several responses were given to fully answer this question.  The final count came to 15 NATIONS that have sent at least one representative to an IAWA event or competition!

Steve then put together this banner which shows the flags of all countries that have had past involvement in IAWA.  Can you identify all the flags?  I had to “cheat” and look a few up – but here are the answers!

United Kingdom Germany New Zealand China
Canada Ireland Finland Italy
Thailand Australia Pakistan Spain
Wales United States Scotland England
