What happens if the Olympic Flame is extinguished on its journey to Paris?

The Olympic Flame is sacred, unique, and always burning.

From its lighting in Olympia, thanks to the parabolic mirror, until the closing ceremony of the Games, it never extinguishes.

In case of an exceptional situation where the Flame might go out, safety lanterns, also containing the sacred fire from Olympia, are always with it.

These lanterns, similar to miner's lamps, even travel by plane!

Thus, it is always the same original Flame that continues its journey from ancient Greece to the host country of the Games.
