Romanian NOC

The Romanian NOC created an “Olympic Forest” on land in the open-air Village Museum in Bucharest, near the Romanian NOC headquarters. One hundred Romanian Olympic stars planted 100 trees this year to celebrate the country’s centenary. The Olympic Forest symbolises life, tradition, human performance and the essence of mother nature, by using the Olympic values as an image vector. Representatives from the NOC of Romania, chaired by Mihai Covaliu, representatives from the national Olympic movement, as well as the Minister of Youth and Sports and school children attended the ceremony. Octavian Morariu, IOC Member in Romania, delivered a message from the IOC President while Djordje Visacki, a member of the European Olympic Committee (EOC) Executive Committee, brought a message from EOC President Janez Kocijancic.
