Managed By: Icon Here Torch Keepers
Description:
Locate all the eternal flames in the world and tell about the history and the meaning of the flame.
Expanded Description:
An eternal flame is a flame or torch that burns constantly.

In ancient times eternal flames were fueled by wood or olive oil; modern examples by a measured supply of propane gas or natural gas. Eternal flames are most often used as a symbol to acknowledge and remember a person or event of national significance, or a group of brave and noble people connected to some event, or even a laudable goal such as international peace.

UPDATE (August 28, 2012): We will also accept electric "flames" as long as the Long Description shows that it is a memorial and follows the original intent of this category.

UPDATE (May 17, 2014): We will accept eternal flames that are no longer functioning (i.e., no longer producing a flame) as long as it is clear that the memorial was originally a functioning flame.
