Flags and Formatting: A Busy Week for Protocol
By Marielle Petranoff, Office of Protocol Intern
Well, hello everyone.
For example, there are only two internationally recognized flags that aren’t rectangular. Care to hazard a guess? (The answer: Nepal and Switzerland) While this information may not be directly applicable to the business world, the fact that I am basically in charge of the collection is great experience. This week, I even got to put all of this knowledge in action in the set up for Catholic Charities’ Refugee Day dinner. Now we have a competition running through the office to see who can name all 196 country flags (as recognized by the United States) the fastest. I’ve got some competition.
