The two-time Wimbledon champion is bidding to defend his Olympic singles title in Brazil after winning singles gold and mixed doubles silver with Laura Robson at London 2012.
“To lead out Team GB will be an incredible honour, the biggest in sport,” Murray said. “I obviously have great memories of London and I am 100% focused on winning here in Rio.
"The privilege of being the flag bearer is a moment I will remember for the rest of my life and will certainly be one of the highlights of my career."
Murray is the No.2 seed behind Novak Djokovic in the singles, and he and brother Jamie are the No.2 seeds in the men’s doubles.
