The Athens 2004 Olympic torch is designed to resemble an olive leaf. Weighing 700 gr. and standing at 68 cm, the torch's design was selected to enhance the flame with its upward dynamic shape. Its ergonomic curved design establishes the torch as the continuation of the flame, which does not only come from the torch, but rises as a continuation of the torchbearer's hand.

On August 13th 2004 in the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games in Greece, the torch will light the flame in the Athens Olympic Stadium and the entire world.
