The torch-lighting ceremony is led by the High Priestess, who prays to the ancient Gods, Apollo and Zeus, and lights the torch using a concave mirror to focus the sun's rays. Once lit, she takes the flame in a small ceramic bowl and leads a procession towards the Panathenaic Stadium, briefly stopping to observe the custom of cutting a branch from an olive tree – a symbol of peace. When the High Priestess arrives into the stadium, she then lights the torch of the first runner to signal the start of the relay.

圣火采集仪式由最高女祭司主持,她向古代神袛阿波罗和宙斯祈祷,然后使用凹面镜聚焦太阳的射线,点燃奥运圣火。圣火点燃后,她将其取到一个陶瓷碗里,带领队伍游行到雅典体育场,中间短暂停留,从橄榄树上摘下一条树枝,这一仪式是和平的象征。当女祭司进入体育场后,她点燃第一个火炬传递者的火炬,标志着火炬传递的开始。
