The closing ceremony of the 2016 Summer Olympics was held on the 21st August 2016 from 20:00 to 22:50 BRT at the Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro. The ceremony featured cultural presentations from Brazil to Japan, as well as closing speeches by Olympic Committee officials. Ultimately, the official handover of the Olympic flag from Rio de Janeiro mayor Eduardo Paes to Tokyo governor Yuriko Koike whose city will be hosting the 2020 Summer Olympics was on the agenda, concluded by the extinguishing of the Olympic flame.

The flag then faded out to thank those who helped the country during the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. A very touching moment!
