The Olympic Egg celebrates the historic 100th Anniversary of the Birth of the Modern Olympic Games and the high ideals associated with the Olympic movement of promoting world peace through friendly sporting competition. The Egg also celebrates Atlanta as the host to this great anniversary and the last games of the twentieth century.
This Egg draws its inspiration from both the ancient and modern movement. The Olympic flame adorns the Egg as a light to peace and goodwill. The symbol of Atlanta is found in the Phoenix rising.
The surprise is the sterling arena where all the athletes come together, inset is the likeness of the 1896 winner's medal a symbol of excellence and achievement.
