Beijing Winter Olympics End With Parade of National Flags and Burst of Fireworks

BEIJING—With a parade of national flags and a last burst of fireworks in the stadium identified as the Bird’s Nest, China on Sunday officially concluded a Beijing Winter Olympics that sought to unify the globe but ended up highlighting its divisions.

Athletes competed for medals though the risk of war loomed in some of their homelands.
