greece has issued a list of items banned at the olympics. this one in particular seems quite important:

They will also have to read up on the list of Olympic sponsors to ensure that they do not wear “hats or bags … bearing the insignia of competitors of the sponsors.”

god forbid someone show up wearing clothing by a competitor not sponsoring the olympics, no that wouldn’t do at all.

nice to know that in some countries paranoia about security and offending someone is deep enough to curtail freedom of expression. is it always like this with the olympics or is this a special case with greece?
