Matthieu Lehanneur's Olympic Torch Design Symbolizes Unity and Tranquility
Here is what the torch for the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris will look like. The French designer Matthieu Lehanneur, chosen by the 'Paris 2024' organization through a competition, is responsible for its innovative design.
Matthieu's vision for the torch is meant to symbolize equality (hence the 'perfect symmetry'), tranquility (represented by the 'clean, rounded form'), and water, which will 'play a particular role in these competitions'. 'The flame will cross the Mediterranean Sea and oceans to share the energy of the Games with the entire French people,' says 'Paris 2024'.
