The Olympic Flame, Olympic Fire, Olympic Torch, Olympic Light, Olympic Eye, and Olympic Sun is a symbol of the Olympic Games. Commemorating the theft of fire from the Greek god Zeus by Prometheus, its origins lie in ancient Greece, when a fire was kept burning throughout the celebration of the ancient Olympics. The fire was reintroduced at the Olympics in 1928, and it has been part of the modern Olympic Games ever since. The modern torch relay was introduced by Carl Diem, president of the Organisation Committee for the Berlin Games of 1936, as part of an effort to turn the games into a glorification of the Third Reich . But despite its Nazi origin, the torch ceremony is still practised as of 2006.
The Olympics were actually only one part of the Panhellenic games. In ancient Greece, the Panhellenic games were a series of four competitions: The Olympic Games, The Pythian Games, The Nemean Games, and the Isthmian Games. Each set of games honored one of the Greek gods. The Olympic Games is the oldest of the four games, and the one that still exists today.

The first Olympic games were held in Greece. The Greeks believed that the 12 main deities lived on Mount Olympus. So they named the games in honor of their Gods. That name has filtered into modern history and is the name for the Winter and Summer Olympic games In addition, there is a town on the Peleponnese named Olympia. It was the site of the original olympic games held in the 776 B.C.E. A large part of the stadium and hippodrome are is still intact and may be visited. Olympia is also the site of one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia. The statue is long gone but part of the temple remains.
