"El Naveghable", 9 May 2012, reports a flag blunder that happened during the closing ceremony of the JUDEJUT, held in Puno, Peru. The national flag presented to the Chilean athletes was starless (although quite incredible, the blunder is evidenced by a photo). Quite upset, the Chilean delegates stopped the ceremony and pinned a paper star to the flag before joining back the ceremony. In the context of the difficult relations between Chile and Peru, the blunder appeared to the Chileans as a lack of respect for their country.

How would you even get one of these? Its doubtful a commercially available one would have such a mistake so it have to have been a specially made one in which case (baring intent) quality control seen to have been a bit shoddy.
