Agitos, paralympic symbol, at Eton Dorney
Whereas the Olympics have had their five rings symbol since 1912, the paralymics have had to change their symbol several times. One using five of the Korean tae-guk symbols was introduced in 1988, but was too similar to the olympics five rings. A symbol with three tae-guks was used from 1994-2004. The present one with three agitos was introduced after that. "Agito" is the Latin for "I move".
