The torch bears the motif of a cherry blossom, Japan’s best-loved flower, and will begin its journey across the country with the arrival of the cherry blossom season in March 2020." For the Paralympic Torch, "the pink torch will be lit for the first time in Tokyo in August 2020, embodying the 'Share Your Light' concept of the and leveraging the enthusiasm of all those supporting the Paralympics."
