Athens torch is a pen

Athens 2004 torch relay

The 2004 Olympic torch looks like a pen. Is there some significance to this?

It certainly doesn’t fit with the image of the new boring mascots. I guess Greece isn’t trying to keep a cohesive story going. It DOES look like a pen! Maybe you can carry the torch and then put it in your pocket protector!

My first thought was that it was a pair of tweeers. Perhaps Greece has a stray nosehair. heh 😉

it’s like a weapon. it’s like a dagger.

According to the Athens 2004 website the design is based on an olive leaf. I still think it looks more like a fancy pen.
