The Olympic Flame and Torch

The traditional Olympic flame was burning during the Olympic games were happening. They will light the flame every 4 years for the Olympic games.

In the past the olympic flames represented greek hero's rebirth and death.

In 1963, the first torch relay stared in Berlin, Germany. The torch was lit in the stadium in olympia and got carried around different countries.

The torch is carried by many people that might carry it by walking, running, riding horses and many other transports.

The last person who runs back to the stadium gets to light the big torch. At end of the olympic games the torch gets put out at the end of the closing ceremony.

In another four years there will be a new torch designed for the Olympic Games.
