Japan Reveals The Official Olympic Torch Design For 2020

Japan is hosting the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, and they have just revealed their design for the Olympics torch. Designed by Tokujin Yoshioka, the stunning rose gold beacon is made to resemble the most celebrated national flower of the country: the cherry blossom (or sakura).


Yoshioka incorporated the sakura motif into this design using a single sheet of aluminum metal. It is made using the same cutting-edge technology as the shinkansen bullet trains of the country. Yoshioka also pays homage to the heroic efforts of those that had to rebuild their lives after the devastating earthquake and tsunami in 2011—approximately 30 percent of the 71cm-long, 1.2kg torch is made from recycled aluminum which was used for temporary housing units. Yoshioka revealed, “Cherry blossoms drawn by children in the disaster-hit area inspired me.”


On March 26, 2020, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Torch Relay will start in Fukushima and be carried by roughly 80-90 runners for 121 days through the country’s rich landscape, before igniting the Olympic cauldron (which signifies the beginning of the games) at the opening ceremony. 10,000 torches in total will be produced for the event. As the committee reports, “The flame will burn brightly and forcefully through the wide variety of seasons, climatic conditions and geographical regions that make up the Japanese archipelago.”
