The Uhuru Torch symbolizes freedom and light. It was first lit on top of Mount Kilimanjaro in 1961. Symbolically to shine the country and across the borders to bring hope where there is despair, love where there is enemity and respect where there is hatred. Yearly there is the Uhuru Torch race, starting from different regions throughout Tanzania, to remind Tanzanians of their duty to jealously guard their cherished freedom, unity and peace.
