Official Torch for the XXIth Olympic Games

Montreal 1976 Olympic Torch.dallaire_torch_canadian_design.jpg

Two thousand units of this design were produced for the XXIth Olympic Games by Montreal Industrial Designer- Michel Dallaire. Its simple lines recall antiquity and the resinous wooden torchs in Greece. Fueled by super-activated olive oil (olive oil, nitropropane, and heptane contained in a hydrophollic cotton cartridge) the torches’ fuel was perfected with the assistance of the Department of Chemistry at the L’École Polytechnique de Montréal.
