Torch Relay
Since the 1936 games there has been a ceremonial Torch Relay. This idea came from Carl Diem, Secretary General of the Organizing Committee of the games of the eleventh Olympiad. The torch will travel from Olympia, Greece to the the city that is hosting that years games. This journey will take a few months depending on where the host city is. The torch is passed from person to person.
Torch Design
Each Olympics has a different torch design that symbolizes the host country's local tradition and culture. This design custom dates back to the 1936 games.
A ceremony is presented for the lighting of the Olympic Flame in honor of the Olympic Games. This ceremony is televised to the public. They will spend a few days rehearsing to make this one moment perfect. Actresses will play the part of priestesses. The flame is lit in front of the ruins of the Temple of Hera in Olympia, Greece. It is tradition for the flame to be lit by the suns rays reflected on the parabolic mirror.
