The Organising Committee of the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 revealed its Olympic torch design during an event marking one year to go until the Games begin.

The torch was presented during a ceremony held in the iconic Beijing 2008 Summer Games venue – the National Aquatics Centre – which has been transformed into the “Ice Cube” for next year’s Olympic Winter Games curling competition.

The winning design, selected from 182 entries in a global competition launched back in April 2020, was commended by Beijing 2022’s judges for its combination of Chinese aesthetic value, traditional cultural connotations and advanced technology.

One of the design highlights allows two Olympic torches to lock into each other at the top when torchbearers exchange the flame during the Olympic Torch Relay. The two-tone design represents a metaphor of fire and ice, symbolising how it will bring light and warmth to the winter sports scene.

It features the emblem of the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022, with patterns of clouds and snowflakes painted from the bottom up to the flame.
