The Olympic Torch is much more than a simple object. It is a powerful symbol that embodies the spirit of the Games by carrying the Olympic and Paralympic Flame, spreading a message of peace and unity.

According to tradition, the Torch was lit in Olympia, Greece on April 16, and will cross the Mediterranean to arrive in Marseille, France on May 8, marking the start of four months of festivities until the closing of the Paralympic Games on September 8. On its journey to Paris, the Olympic flame will pass through 64 French departments (counties) — including five overseas — and 400 towns, over 68 days, before the Olympic cauldron is lit at the opening ceremony in Paris. The Paris Olympic Games run from July 26 - Aug. 11.

The flame for the Paralympics will be lit in the British town of Stoke Mandeville and will be carried by 1,000 people. The Paralympics run from Aug. 28 - Sept. 8.

On the obverse, Marianne, the symbol of the French Republic, is depicted as if she were in motion holding the Olympic torch. The flame dancing at the top of the torch symbolizes the passionate spirit and determination of the athletes. In the background, an athletics track stretches out.

The reverse shows a view of Paris where the Seine looks like an athletics track. The Eiffel Tower dominates the city and illuminates the competition.
