June 13 (Official website of the Sochi 2014) - The Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee unveiled the Celebration Cauldron of the Olympic Torch Relay in Red Square, Moscow on June 12.


The lighting of the Celebration Cauldron will be the culmination of each day’s festivities across Russia during the Relay. The Celebration Cauldrons are set to be produced and will be installed in all of the cities hosting end of day celebrations along the route of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Torch Relay.


The concept behind the Cauldron echoes that of the Olympic Torch, and was designed in an identical style. The color of the Cauldron is bright red and silver: cold 'ice' sparkles in the sunlight and is topped off with a warm, dark scarlet 'flame'.


The Celebration Cauldron for Sochi 2014 was developed by a team of famous Russian designers and engineers. The details of the cauldron are covered in ultra-glossy dyes featuring deep red color. The basic color is light-silver "chrome", and the finish - low-dispersion matte. Each cauldron is 130 cm tall, 60 cm wide and the base is 110 cm wide. The cauldron and its component parts have been put through numerous tests, and have been tested in the harshest of conditions.


The President of the Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee, Dmitry Chernyshenko, said: "The Celebration Cauldron of the Olympic Torch Relay is one of the main features of the Relay. Each region will have an opportunity to keep the Cauldron. The Cauldron will form a part of Games Legacy and will remind the people of each region of this historic event – the longest Torch Relay in the history of the Olympic Winter Games.”
