The Rio 2016 Paralympic Torch will be "lit up virtually" by internet users around the world using hashtags.
Rio's Paralympic Torch Relay will begin on September 1 and will visit five cities - Brasilia, Belem, Natal, São Paulo and Joinville - before arriving in Rio de Janeiro, and will "make use of modern technology".
Different Paralympic values will be used to virtually light the Torch in each city it visits.
Equality will be the value used to light the Torch in Brasilia, while it will be determination in Belem, inspiration in Natal, transformation in São Paulo, courage in Joinville and finally passion in Rio de Janeiro.
To participate in the Relay, internet users need to post a social media message with the official hashtag and the hashtag of the value for the city that day - with an example being #ParalympicFlame and #equality.
Users will then be able to monitor a "heat map" created by the hashtags on the Rio 2016 website.
In total, 745 Torchbearers will carry the Torch on a journey which will total 250 kilometres.
The design of the Torch is also said to "reflect the Paralympic values of courage, determination, inspiration and equality".
In each city, the Relay will visit institutions which work to improve the lives of people with impairment.
There will also be ceremonies in major parks and public spaces.
Elsewhere, the British town of Stoke Mandeville, the birthplace of the Paralympic Movement, will host a special Torch lighting ceremony as part of "Heritage flame" celebrations on September 2.
This flame will "sent" virtually to Brazil, where it will merge with the Brazilian flames at a special ceremony in the Museu do Amanha in Rio on September 6.
The Torch will then visit other parts of the city, including the world-famous statue of Christ the Redeemer.
During the Paralympic Games, which will run between September 7 and 18, the flame will burn in a special cauldron in front of the church of Candelaria, in the city’s historic centre.
