    A symbol of hope

    The staging of the Olympic Games Antwerp 1920 was, and continues to be, of significant symbolic importance. At the time, countries across the world were reeling from the devastating effects of the war and the Spanish flu pandemic. People longed for unity and peace. The coming together of 2,626 athletes in Belgium, just two years after the country had been liberated from occupation, still stands as a recognition of that longing.
