The theme "I am Canadian" will be hold at their heart of the ceremonies.


At the event, some of the great innovations and talent from Canada will be celebrated, as well as ice hockey and the Canadian Mountie.


The pre-show entertainment was lead by television personality Tamara Taggart and entertainment host Ben Mulroney. Suzie McNeil is to sing "Believe" and emerging Canadian rockers Inward Eye will perform "Day After Day".


As the Vancouver's Olympic torch is extinguished, snow falls and Heppner performs the song "Long May You Run", after the flag is lowered marking the end of the Games in the rhythm of the Olympic anthem.


International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge will give the Olympic Flag to the Mayor of Sochi, Russia - the next host of the Winter Olympics in 2014.


"Zorbs" - giant spheres maneuvered by people in side, play a key role in the ceremony with Olympic champions.


As each person arrived, they found an audience kit, designed to look like a suitcase. It included props designed for each specific seat. In all there are 289 different possible combinations in the 60,000 kits.


At the end of the ceremony, the audience inside BC Place will be invited to hold up their own small Zorbs, included in the audience package, like snow globes. Around the world, the crowd will appear as twinkling red, white and blue spheres, representing the Russian colours, and demonstrating Sochi 2014's commitment to the involvement of people from all cultures and backgrounds.
