The giant Olympic Rings in Vancouver’s Coal Harbour and at Vancouver International Airport will remain lit until 7 a.m.
On March 5, proudly displaying a gold glow to celebrate the remarkable achievements of Canada’s athletes during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
With 3.5 billion people – more than half the world’s population – watching the Games and more than 250,000 people visiting B.C., the giant Olympic Rings proved to be a popular visual component for the festive atmosphere in the City of Vancouver during the month of February.
Following March 5, the Province will install the Paralympic Symbol – The Agitos – in the same harbour and airport locations.
The Agitos will carry the spirited legacy of Vancouver 2010 forward, promoting the excitement of the Paralympic Winter Games. The project is scheduled to be completed shortly before the Paralympic Winter Games begin on March 12.
