Olympic Torch Relay

Months before  each  olympics games there is a fire  torch to start it off .
The  women acts as a  priestess to ignite the torch of the first  person in to relay. The    flame  is to reunite everyone in the stadium.

One person  walks in  with the cauldron as the ceremony starts. It is passed on until it reaches  the last carrier. It  is placed down and is lit in the stadium. The cauldron is used to light the first torch to start the race.

Olympic symbols

The olympic symbols  are better known as the olympic linked rings  because at least two or three colours  are on every  flag. The rings represent the inhabited continents ( Africa, Asia,Europe,America ,Australasia).

The olympic flag was made in 1914 but it was first  raised  in 1920 .  Ever since it  has been raised on olympic competitions days and is going to continue to  over 2012.
