Liechtenstein at the 1936 Summer Olympics

Liechtenstein competed at the Summer Olympic Games for the first time at the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany. Six male competitors took part in five events in three sports.[1] It was only at these games that Liechtenstein realized their flag was identical to the flag of Haiti, prompting Liechtenstein in 1937 to add the crown found in their current flag [2] This modified design was adopted on June 24, 1937.[2]
