Banned Items

With less than a month to go before the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics, on 8 August, the authorities are laying down the rules as to what people cannot bring into Olympic venues.

Included on the list are "GO China" banners (on the grounds of fairness spectators will be expected to cheer for all competitors), soft drink containers, musical instruments and whistles.

The BOCOG has also prohibited leaflets publicising commercial activities, religion, politics, the military, human rights or environmental or animal welfare.

Other banned items include; banners and flags larger than two metres by one metre, flags of non-participating countries, flash photography, drunkenness, nudity, gambling, sit-ins, demonstrations, guns, ammunition, crossbows, daggers and goods thought to be flammable, caustic or radioactive.

You have been warned!
