What is the significance of the Olympic flame?

The Olympic flame is a practice continued from the ancient Olympic Games. In Olympia (Greece), a flame was ignited by the sun and then kept burning until the closing of the Olympic Games. The flame first appeared in the modern Olympics at the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam. The flame itself represents a number of things, including purity and the endeavor for perfection. In 1936, the chairman of the organizing committee for the 1936 Olympic Games, Carl Diem, suggested what is now the modern Olympic Torch relay. The Olympic flame is lit at the ancient site of Olympia by women wearing ancient-style robes and using a curved mirror and the sun. The Olympic Torch is then passed from runner to runner from the ancient site of Olympia to the Olympic stadium in the hosting city. The flame is then kept alight until the Games have concluded. The Olympic Torch relay represents a continuation from the ancient Olympic Games to the modern Olympics.


When were the Olympic rings first used?

The Olympic Committee adopted the symbol/flag in 1914, and it was first flown at the 1920 Antwerp Games.


Why do they carry the olympic flame from mt Olympus to each modern olympic game?

The flame is not carried from mt Olympus but from the ancient sanctuary of Olympia in southeastern Greece, in the regional district of Elia (Ηλιεία in Greek), in Peloponnese. The first Olympic games ever (named after the region) took place there in 776 BC. The flame used to burn non stop during the Games back at the time, and it symbolised the theft of fire from the Greek god Zeus by Prometheus. The Olympic torch relay from Greece to various cities around the world, has no ancient precedent whatsoever and it was introduced for the first time in the Olympic games of Berlin in 1936 (the Nazi Olympics) by Carl Diem, who imagined a symbolic pageant that would give the Nazi Germany a bit of the old glory of ancient Greece, by the transit of a lit flame from Greece to Berlin by a relay of torch-bearing runners. Although the transfer of the Greek flame around the world gives a mystifying glory of the past to the modern Olympic Games, it is not understood why this Nazi extravaganza is still happening today.

Is the Olympic flame extinguished while being transported from country to country?

No, the whole point is that the flame used to light the Olympic games is that flame lit by the light of the Sun at Olympia in Greece. It is not normal to allow flames on planes but the Olympic flame is given special dispensation and is, for the purposes of transport, contained in a Davey lamp for safety.
