The Games of the XI Olympiad are often cited by sports buffs, as it is when Jesse Owens won four gold medals in long jumg and sprint events. The games were held in Berlin, Germany and it was the first time that the Olympic Games were televised. It was broadcasted by radio to over 40 countries around the world. The Olympic flag flew right next to the Nazi flag. Commissioned by the German Olympic Committee, Leni Riefenstahl used many techniques to produce a film on the games titled Olympia. These techniques are still utilized today to film sporting events. And finally it was the last Olympic Games until 1948 because of World War II. Also during the 1936 Olympic Games, the country of Liechtenstein after it paraded into the stadium, lined up like the other nations realized that they had the very same flag as Haiti. Their flag had a blue band on top and red on the bottom just as the Haitian flag at the time. In 1937, they rectified the issue and added the gold crown to their national flag in 1937.
