The Five Rings on the Olympic Flag The rings on the Olympic flag represent the five continents of the world that have come together in the Olympic spirit. Every country in the world has at least one of the colors of the rings in their flag, blue, black and red (top colors) ･ yellow, green (bottom colors). The five continents they count are North America, South America, Africa, Europe, and Asia. They do not include Australia, or Antarctica.
Each individual ring does not stand for a specific continent. They represent the "five" continents. One assumes that North and South America are considered a single continent and Antarctica is excluded. It wasn't until the 1912 Games that atheletes came from all 5 continents. On the Olympic Flag, the rings are represented in 5 different colors on a white background. The six colors of the rings and background represent ALL countries and therefore are not specific to an individual continent. I would say that Australia IS represented in the emblem Please refer to this document describing the Olympic symbols: http://multimedia.olympic.org/pdf/en_report_1303.pdf
