Tower Bridge and the Paralympic Agitos

A quick trip to the Tower Bridge revealed that the Olympic Rings have been removed and replaced by the Paralympic symbol.

The Paralympic swooshes, swishes, things are actually called agitos, which comes from the Latin and means I move. The Paralympic symbol represents  the Paralympic motto “Spirit in Motion”.

The colors (red, blue, green) were chosen as they are most commonly used in national flags.

Anyway, so if you were wondering – like I was – why there is a 2-week break between the Olympics and the Paralympics, I know the answer.

All Olympic symbols across official Olympic/Paralympic venues had to be replaced by Paralympic symbols. That is a task in itself. 🙂
