Featured here is a 1984 Sarajevo Winter Olympics torch that appears to have been used in the relay. The Olympic flame began in Olympia, Greece, and traveled 5,289 km (900 km by torchbearers and the rest by vehicle) before arriving in Sarajevo after an 11-day journey. The host nation formerly known as Yugoslavia had a total of 1600 torchbearers. The 1984 Sarajevo Olympics were the first Winter Games held in a Communist country.

Manufactured by Nippon Koki Co. and Mizuno Corporation, the torch comes in two parts with a gold and silver colored base bowl (handle) and a stainless-steel cylinder. The bowl has "Sarajevo '84" and an "M" (for Mizuno) inscribed on the gold platform with "MIZUNO CORPORATION JAPAN" engraved on the very bottom of the handle. The 1984 Sarajevo Winter Games emblem appears on the cylinder where the burnt darkening begins. The torch stands 57 cm (22.5") tall, weighs 1.5 lbs., and includes a display stand from Mizuno Corporation and Mitsubishi Motors Corporation that makes for a beautiful presentation piece. There is a noticeable dent at the midpoint of the cylinder and several scratches throughout. The top of the cylinder has darkened from combustion. Overall, it remains in good shape, representing one of the last symbols of peace and unity within a war-torn Yugoslavia now divided into several independent nations.
