The Olympic flame is lit every 4 years. When the Olympic flame is lit the Olympics has started and when the Olympics is finished the flame is put out.
The torch looks like a very big flower and it is made out of copper metal. It is shiny and very bright when it is lit.
Each country who attends the Olympic games has a petal each from the torch to take home when the Olympics has finished.
It is seen at the Olympic stadium when the Olympics has started. It is used as the Olympics Symbol.
I think that the Olympic flame is special because it is very unique and It tells us when the Olympics has started and when it has finished.
