London closed their 2012 Olympic Games with a bang. The Spice Girls, Take That, Queen (with Freddie Mercury projection), Monty Python and Annie Lennox took to the stage. The UK really made sure that the best they have to offer is all in place for the occasion.

Star artist Damien Hirst was also involved and designed a massive flag for the Closing Ceremony. The Union Jack flag was redesigned in the signature spin painting style of the artist and was then filled with artists and integrated into the show. Did you watch the event?
