Αθήνα 1896


No official poster was made for the 1896 Olympic Games, but the cover page of the official report is often used to refer to the Games of the I Olympiad. The inscription "776-1896", like the drawing as a whole: the Olympic stadium in a newly designed horseshoe shape, the Acropolis, the girl personifying the goddess Athena and presenting the branch of wild olive intended for the victor, mark the bond between the Games of Antiquity and the first Games of the modern era.

The 2004 Olympic Games emblem portrays an olive wreath, or kotinos, a branch from an olive tree intertwined in a circle.

The colours of the emblem symbolise the shades of white and blue found in the Greek countryside.

Αθήνα 2004


The Athens 2004 Olympic torch is designed to resemble an olive leaf. Weighing 700 gr. and standing at 68 cm, the torch's design was selected to enhance the flame with its upward dynamic shape. Its ergonomic curved design establishes the torch as the continuation of the flame, which does not only come from the torch, but rises as a continuation of the torchbearer's hand.

On August 13th 2004 in the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games in Greece, the torch lit the flame in the Athens Olympic Stadium.

Αθήνα 2004


Phevos and Athena, the official ATHENS 2004 mascots, are brother and sister. The brother and sister mascots are inspired from a pair of 7th century dolls found during archaeological excavations in Greece. Their names are linked to Ancient Greece, yet the two siblings are children of modern times.

The names are of two Olympian gods: Phevos, the god of light and music, known as Apollo; and Athena, goddess of wisdom and patron of the city of Athens. Phevos and Athena represent the link between Greek history and the modern Olympic Games.

Phevos and Athena represent the values of Olympism: participation, brotherhood, equality, cooperation, fair play.

Athena and Phevos are two dolls. They remind us of the pleasure of indulging in games; they highlight that the value of participation is higher than that of victory.
