The 5 Olympic rings represent the 5 continents. 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 Olympic Rings were created by Baron Pierre de Coubertin in 1913 and first displayed on the Olympic flag in 1920.

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
There are not 6 rings. The symbol of the Olympic Games is composed of five interlocking rings, coloured blue, yellow, black, green, and red on a white field. The Olympic rings represent the five parts of the world involved in the Olympics and were designed in 1912.
No, not all of the continents are in the olympic games. Because Antarctica has no one living there, they do not count. So, only 6 are in the olynpics, even though there are 5 rings. In this, it's because North and South America are 1 continent. No, not all of the continents are in the olympic games. Because Antarctica has no one living there, they do not count.

North and South America are combined.
