Beijing 2022The Torch

Torch design and details

The official torch of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games.

The Olympic torch is an iconic part of any Games, with each competition providing their own unique touch to the design. The torch for Beijing 2022 - bearing the name 'Flying' (飞扬 Fei Yang) - is no exception.

Beijing is the first city to host both the Summer and Winter Olympic Games. The design of the 2022 torch honours the Olympic legacy in the Chinese capital by featuring a similar design to the cauldron of the 2008 Olympic Games, which looked like a giant scroll.

The design of the torch is full of dynamism and vitality, with a spiral construction that resembles a fluttering ribbon where the Olympic flame sits. The emblem of Beijing 2022 sits on the mid-section of the torch, while the whirling red line on its body represents the winding Great Wall, the skiing courses at the Games, and mankind’s relentless pursuit of light, peace, and excellence.

The use of red and silver as primary colours for the torch are metaphors of ice and fire, meant to symbolise how the torch will bring 'light and warmth to the world of ice and snow'.
