The olympic flame is not extinguished from the time it is lit in Olympia to the end of the games in the host city. When it is carried on a plane it is held in several sealed containers
It is the Olympic Torch!
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.
the olympic games first started in 776 bc in Olympia and then carried on every 4 years
There were no Olympic Games in 1804. The first modern games were held in Athens, Greece, in 1896.
