The colors of the Paralympic symbol are used to light up Tokyo Skytree in Sumida Ward, Tokyo, on Thursday 26 August.

The Paralympic symbol is called the “Three Agitos,” which means “I move” in Latin. It represents Paralympians who continuously push their own limits.

The symbol is also projected onto the observation deck, which stretches 350 meters above ground in Sumida Ward, Tokyo.
