Olympic flame to be lit in Ancient Olympia

April 16

The journey of the Olympic Flame from its lighting in Ancient Olympia to its arrival in Paris for the opening of the 2024 Olympic Games sounds like a fascinating and historical event. The symbolism and tradition behind the lighting of the flame and its transfer across countries is truly remarkable. It will be exciting to see how the flame travels through Greece and France, connecting these two nations in the spirit of the Olympics. The handover ceremony at the Panathenaic Stadium and the subsequent voyage of the flame on the ship “Belem” are sure to be memorable moments leading up to the grand opening in Paris.
