Locate all the eternal flames in the world and tell about the history and the meaning of the flame.
Expanded Description:

An eternal flame is a flame or torch that burns constantly.

In ancient times eternal flames were fueled by wood or olive oil; modern examples by a measured supply of propane gas or natural gas. Eternal flames are most often used as a symbol to acknowledge and remember a person or event of national significance, or a group of brave and noble people connected to some event, or even a laudable goal such as international peace.

UPDATE (August 28, 2012): We will also accept electric "flames" or other renditions of a flame as long as the Long Description shows that it is a memorial and follows the original intent of this category.

UPDATE (May 17, 2014): We will accept eternal flames that are no longer functioning (i.e., no longer producing a flame) as long as it is clear that the memorial was originally a functioning flame.

Instructions for Posting a Eternal Flames Waymark:
Find Eternal Flames and share the history of the flame. A Long Description that's different from the Quick Description must be included.

LANGUAGE NOTE: We recognize waymarking as a global hobby and welcome waymarks from all countries. However, if the waymark is written in a language other than English, an English translation is required. The English translation does not need to be perfect, just clear enough for the Officers and other viewers to understand what the waymark is about. And, as always, please cite your sources. Thank you!
