Agitos, paralympic symbol, at Eton Dorney
Agitos, paralympic symbol, at Eton Dorney, taken 5 years ago
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".
