Unlike forms, and components on the forms a (single) instance of TApplication is created before any user line of code. In a .lpr file (a pascal file containing the keyword 'program' ) the Application-variable is used to create the applications form(s):

program pMyTest;
  Forms, uMyForm

{$R *.res}

  Application.CreateForm( TMyForm, MyForm );

TMyForm is assumed a descendant of TForm and defined in uMyForm.pas
