The Unified Team was the name used for the sports team of 11 former constituent republics of the Soviet Union[1] (excluding Estonia, Georgia, Latvia, and Lithuania) at the 1992 Winter Paralympics in Albertville[2] and the 1992 Summer Paralympics in Barcelona.[3] The IOC country code was EUN, after the French name, Équipe Unifiée.

The Paralympic Flag was used in place of a national flag at the Opening Ceremony and at medals ceremonies, and the Paralympic Hymn was played for gold medallists.
