The official flame of the inaugural European Games has been welcomed to Khirdalan by hundreds of local residents, who then took part in a spectacular Festival of Fire in the city center.

At the symbolic gate of the European Games, the flame was handed to four-time world and two-time European kung-fu champion Ramiz Yaghnaliyev.

The flame was then passed to 10 torchbearers who completed the 2.5km route.

The last torchbearer, European and four-time world kung-fu champion Rovshan Hashimov took to the stage and lit the flame.

The flame was then carried to a commemorative lamp that will remain on display in the city until the Closing Ceremony of the Games on June 28.

Local residents were treated to a video projection depicting the official capturing of the flame at Ateshgah.
