An exhibition on the 100th anniversary of the 1920 Olympic Games in Antwerp at The Olympic Museum.
The 1920 edition has, of course, been chosen for a reason:
100 YEARS AGO: The Games in Antwerp were the first to be organised after World War I, the cancellation of the 1916 Games due to be held in Berlin, and the Spanish flu pandemic. These Games were a call for peace and unity between the nations beneath the Olympic flag, which was being flown in a stadium for the first time.
AND TODAY: The world of 1920 reminds us of our world today. Because of the coronavirus, we need to rebuild our confidence in the future. Lockdown has created a tremendous feeling of unity and solidarity, to which the Olympic Movement is contributing with its #StayStrong #StayActive #StayHealthy digital campaign, launched after the Tokyo 2020 Games were postponed until 2021. The Olympic flag is still aloft, an invitation to help build a better world through sport.
