The Olympic Torch Sculpture on the riverfront is a touching monument that radiates the American spirit of victory and of athletic competition. The sculpture features an Olympic Torch surrounded by five columns that symbolize the five Olympic rings. Framing the flame are billowing sails that represent the sailboats in the Official Olympic Yachting events held in Savannah.
The riverfront sculpture is a monument to Savannah’s role as host of the Yachting events of the 1996 Summer Olympic Games. The stunning monument serves as a lasting memorial on the city’s beautiful waterfront promenade.
