Best Answer

The significance of having an Olympic torch relay is because of many reasons from the joy of seeing it pass down your local high street, to showing that the world is united with this flame.

Firstly, as this flame has been kept going since the first olympic games in Olympia, it proves that our world is caring and all the continents are united as they are on the Olympic logo with the rings joined together.

Secondly, people are constantly at this minute passing on the Olympic flame, which is in Carshalton (near where I live I saw the Olympic torch today :o) which represents one of the sports in the games
