Reference Number: H-614-001

The five rings of the Olympic symbol are the traction wheels of an armoured vehicle which is rolling over the name 'Seoul'. Internal and external political tensions gave Seoul, the host city for the 24th Olympiad, the feeling of an armed camp. Yet these Games, although they were boycotted by North Korea which had wanted to co-host them, saw the largest participation yet, with teams sent by 159 National Olympic Committees.
