Full of symbolism the Olympic Torch Relay in Athens!

The Olympic Flame, from the Acropolis Museum sends its glow to the whole world, together with its special symbolism, after the completion of the sixth day of the torch relay on Greek territory. The cauldron at the Acropolis Museum, where the Flame will remain overnight, was lit by the Secretary General of the Hellenic Olympic Committee Manolis Katsiadakis. The sacred light had crossed the Acropolis in the hands of the Olympic champion Pyrros Dimas, Voula Kozomboli, Georgia Ellinaki, Aggeliki Karapataki, Evi Moraitidou, Virginia Kravarioti and Nikos Deligiannis. The President of the International Olympic Academy Isidoros Kouvelos carried the Olympic Flame at Dionysiou Areopagitou street. He was followed by Sakis Rouvas, who is the ambassador of the event that will be held on Wednesday at the Panathenaic Stadium.

Extremely symbolic was also the moment when the Syrian refugee Ibrahim Al Hussein took the Olympic Flame from the President of the Hellenic Olympic Committee Spyros Carpalos at the Open Reception Centre for Refugees in Eleonas, sending a message of support to all the people who have left their home countries because of the war, in search of a better and safer future.
