My Olympics – Cauldron

To me the cauldron symbolised the Olympic spirit and all that is good about the world.

The cauldron consisted of 204 copper petals, each representing one of the competing nations. They were brought into the stadium by each team as part of the athletes’ procession and each was taken back home by the countries. A piece of London in every country. Why it showed what London was all about was because it wasn’t all about the pomp and show of us Brits but how each country was key to the wonder of the games.

This is my last photograph from the games but I will do a wordy post soon. So for now enjoy…
