In the context of the modern Games, the Olympic flame represents the positive values that Man has always associated with fire. The purity of the flame is guaranteed by the way it
is lit using the sun’s rays.The choice of Olympia as a departure point emphasises the link between the Ancient and
Modern Games and underlines the profound connection between these two events.

"The Olympic flame is the flame which is kindled in Olympia under the authority of the IOC'. Olympic Charter, Article 13.1
