The PLAY TRUE Torch Relay is a project in which a wide range of athletes of different countries, sport and generations take part to leave a legacy of the “truth” in sport, embracing the world and the future.
The “Truth” that each athlete has found through sport and in living will be inscribed in the unique makimono and relayed as a message to the world, and to the future.
The tatewaku is a pattern of wavy lines which meet at trough and peak.The gleaming gold surface of the scroll is patterned with the tatewaku.
The “Truths” of the athletes, a legacy embracing the world and the future, are entwined in the endlessly weaving lines of the tatewaku.
In bringing together the “Truths” of all the athletes, the makimono is a symbol of the infinite possibilities of sport.
