The Paralympic flames for London 2012 will be created on the summits of the highest peaks of the four home nations.
Groups of young disabled and non-disabled Scouts will get the honour of striking the fire-starting rods that will spark the flames.
The fires will be lit at the peaks of Scafell Pike in England, Snowdon in Wales, Ben Nevis in Scotland and Northern Ireland's Slieve Donard on August 22.
They will rest at Paralympic celebrations in London, Belfast, Edinburgh and Cardiff, before heading to Stoke Mandeville, the spiritual home of the Paralympic movement, where they will be united during a special ceremony on August 28.
This will create the London 2012 Paralympic Flame which will then be carried on a 92-mile-long, 24-hour relay to the opening of the Paralympic Games at the Olympic Stadium.
The Beatles' Abbey Road crossing, Lord's Cricket Ground, Piccadilly Circus and Tower Bridge are some of the landmarks that will be visited by the flame.
