Pan Am and Parapan Am Torch

The torch is a unique symbol of the Games, carrying a powerful energy that will unite Canadians.

The contemporary design of the structure presents the energetic and playful TORONTO 2015 brand, and captures the spirit of the Games. The colourful United We Play! pictograms —depictions of people in motion — symbolize the assembly of athletes through the celebration of sport and culture.
