symbolizing the Olympic motto - "Citius, Altius, Fortius" (faster, higher, stronger) 
and our wishes for the future - " Peace, Unity and Love".These were followed by a flock of 14 dovesrepresenting the community.
The combined flock created a "21 Dove Salute" from the flag pole at the Bowser Legion 
to the spirit of the 2010 Olympics.
