FIERY BEGINNINGS

For the first time the Olympic Games featured a symbolic fire – a feature that has become a central theme. The fire was lit in a cauldron that was placed at the top of a tower in the stadium, which had been designed by Jan Wils, a much-celebrated Dutch architect. The Opening Ceremony order of Greece leading the way and the host nation entering last was also established.
