Until 1936, the practice to dip or not to dip flip-flopped. King Gustav V received a dipped flag in the 1912 Games, but 1936 was an easy call. The U.S. nearly didn’t participate in the Berlin Summer Olympics, let alone dip a flag in respect to Adolf Hitler. The decision to not dip was announced beforehand, and the U.S. was joined in protest by Bulgaria, Iceland and India, according to contemporary media reports. The move wasn’t a decision of the athlete, it was a top-down call from the United States Olympic Committee and, as traditions often begin, it just stuck.

So when we don’t dip our flag, it’s not pride. It’s not hubris. It’s not nationalism. It’s just a big F-you to Hitler.

Ever since a decade ago Bulgaria became an unconditional ally of the USA and even enlisted in the first „Coalition of Willing“ of George W Bush in Iraq, joining in Afghanistan shortly before that, and the Bulgarian medics were jailed in Libya as scapegoats in an affair with HIV-infected blood, numerous experts started warning that Bulgaria was threatened with terrorist attacks.
