The Olympic Truce first started in Olympia (Ancient Greece) in 776BC. At this time Greece was split up into different parts and also at war with neighbouring countries. King Iphotos tried to end all the wars by organising an athletic contest every four years. When the Truce started a contract was signed by the rulers of Elis, Sparta and Pisa, making all of the countries come together to reunite.
The very first Truce wall was created by the Greek government for the 2004 Olympics which was hosted by Athens. Since 1998 the flag of the UN (united nations) has flown at all competitive games. The Truce Wall is a symbol of the Olympic Truce and the athletes meaning peace, support and understanding.

The modern Olympic movement began in 1894 when the international Olympic committee was formed. The first modern Olympic games took place in 1896 but it was not until a century later that attempts were made to revive the Olympic Truce.
In 1992 South Africa were able to compete following the abolition of apartheid. In 2000 North and South Korea marched under the same flag at the opening ceremonies. In 2004 Robina Muquimar and Friba Razayee were the first women to represent Afghanistan at the Olympic games.
