7 - 28 September 2004
The ATHENS 2004 Paralympic Games Emblem embodies the strength and determination of the Paralympic athlete. It features the profile of an athlete - male or female - looking forward, symbolizing optimism for the future. At the same time, this human face seems to breathe out the individual's willpower and determination to succeed in all pursuits. The face's lines are smooth, its colour a warm and bright orange - harbiger of the great celebration to come.
