Are the Olympic torch and the Olympic flame the same thing?

Olympic torch-bearers, nominated by sponsors of the Olympic games, carry the Olympic flame from its source, in Athens, to the main stadium, using a series of gas-filled Olympic torches, much like a relay race. Each torch-bearer is given their own Olympic torch (which they keep) which is lit by the Olympic flame carried by the previous torch-bearer. To preserve the flame's continuity, the Olympic flame is carried in special safety-lamps while travelling by air or sea. Once at the main stadium, during the opening ceremony, the final torch-bearer lights the Olympic beacon which remains lit throughout the games. The Olympic flame is therefore the flame itself, while the Olympic torches are the receptacles that carried the flame from Athens to the main stadium.
