I assume you mean the olympic flame.

The flame burns constantly at Olympia in Greece, when its time for the games a torch is lit, sent on a relay and the individual flame in the host nation is lit, and then extinguished

The Olympic torch is part of a tradition going back thousands of years to the original Greek Olympics; it symbolizes the blessing of Apollo, the sun god (the Olympic flame is first ignited with sunlight, using a concave mirror to focus the light). We no longer worship Apollo, but we still light the torch.

The Olympic GamesThe Olympic Games began over 2,700 years ago in Olympia, in southwest Greece. The Games were part of a religious festival. The Greek Olympics, thought to have begun in 776 BC, inspired the modern Olympic Games (begun in 1896) The Games were held in honour of Zeus, king of the gods, and were staged every four years at Olympia, a valley near a city called Elis. People from all over the Greek world came to watch and take part.

It stays lit till the closing ceremony, where the torch is passed on the representive of the country which will host the next games in four years.


Greek Olympic Games inspired modern Olympic Games. One similaritty is the time between the events.
