The Olympia Badge was first designed by the Greek Girl Guiding Association in 2004, to celebrate the return of the Olympic Games to Athens, 108 years after Greece hosted the first modern international Olympics. The aim of the Olympia Badge was to remind people of the original purpose of the Olympic Games; a truly global celebration of peace and international friendship.
