ELEMENTS USED & THE STORY BEHIND THEM:

1.Burning Torch
It symbolizes the eternal flame of knowledge given by education and human achievement.

The Story: The Olympic torch is meant to symbolize the fire gifted to mankind by Prometheus in Greek mythology. Today’s torch is also used as a symbol to connect the ancient games with their modern counterpart. It also acts as a symbol for human achievement.

2.Nib
It symbolizes learning/education.

The story: Nib is the most important part of a fountain pen. It leads ink from the nib feed to the tip via the tines and writes characters on paper. The analogy here is that well-guided students act as vessels of great character and wisdom, the way a fine nib acts as a tool to express thoughts.

3.Open Book
It symbolizes access to the wealth of knowledge in store for young students.

4.Olive Wreath
It symbolizes victory

The Story: According to legends, only one winner per event was crowned with an olive wreath made of wild-olive leaves from a sacred tree near the temple of Zeus at Olympia. Olive wreaths were given out during the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens in honor of the ancient tradition, because the games were being held in Greece.
