Paris 2024 Olympic Games: the Olympic rings will be installed on the Eiffel Tower for the Games

The rings representing the five continents, symbols of the universality of sport, will be installed high up, on the Seine side, said Jean-François Martins, president of Sete.

The Olympic rings, displayed at each edition of the Games on an emblematic monument of the host city, will thus be at the forefront of the opening ceremony, organized in a unique way outside the stadium, in the form of a nautical parade on the Seine. In total, 180 boats, 94 of which will transport the athletes, will parade between the Pont d'Austerlitz and the Pont d'Iéna, just in front of the Iron Lady. The Olympic cauldron which will host the Olympic flame will be installed in the Jardin des Tuileries, a park accessible to the public located between the Louvre Palace and Place de la Concorde.

Last February, however, the tower was closed for six days by a strike by staff dissatisfied with the management of the site, depriving around a hundred thousand people of visits. The Eiffel Tower will also be present on 24 million two-euro coins commemorating the 2024 Olympic Games, which the Paris Mint will put into circulation in June.
