Olympic Flame

The Olympic Flame is a symbol of the Olympic Games. Representation is the theft of fire from Prometheus, Zeus, and the roots lie in ancient Greece, where a fire kept burning during the Olympic Games. The flame came back at the Olympic Games in 1928, while the torch relay was introduced at the Summer Olympic Games in Berlin in 1936.
