Despite never having changed nationality, Šekarić has competed under four flags at her six Olympics. She competed for Yugoslavia at the 1988 Olympics. In 1992, since Yugoslavia was under UN sanctions, she (and fifty other Serbians, Montenegrins, and Macedonians) competed as Independent Olympic Participants. Her next two Olympics were under the flag of Yugoslavia again. In 2004 she competed under the flag of Serbia and Montenegro and she finally competed for Serbia in 2008. Another athlete to compete under four different flags is Serbian-American table tennis player Ilija Lupulesku, but he changed nationality in the process.
