The Paralympic logo has been projected on to the White Cliffs of Dover to herald the final countdown to the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
More than million remaining tickets for the Paralympics go on sale on the London 2012 ticketing website today at 1100 BST to mark the milestone.
Tickets will be made available for both ceremonies and across all sports and prices start at just £10 (£5 for young people and seniors).
Award-winning band Coldplay has been revealed as the headliner for the closing ceremony, called ‘Festival of Flame’, on 9 September.
Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics and Paralympics, Media and Sport, said:
“Britain is the home of the Paralympic movement, and it is incredibly exciting that in London 2012 we host the biggest Paralympics ever. Our Games will be a fantastic opportunity to celebrate disability sport and Team GB’s inspirational Paralympic athletes.”
It has also been announced the 22 Live Sites across the UK will screen eight hours of live Channel 4 coverage of the Paralympic Games every day from 29 August to 9 September.
