    Why "symbolic" message?

    Hello Everyone,

    I would like to know here what is the use of "symbolic" in the following paragraph?

    Please allow me to conclude my statement with a quotation from the address by Foreign Minister Papandreou of Greecein this years' general debate: "Let us reaffirm our commitment to the spirit of peaceful cooperation upon which the Olympics were founded. Let us send a symbolic message from this international body of peace for a peaceful Olympics, and ultimately, for a more peaceful world.

    A peaceful Olympics would be a symbol (model of cooperation) to the entire world.
