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. The Olympic symbol of five interlocking rings represents the five original continents:

# Africa # America (North and South) # Asia # Australia # Europe

BUT -originally there were 6 colors that appeared on all the national flags of the world at the time of it's design/debut in 1931. They symbolize the five regions of the world. The colors represent the colors of national flags--every nation has one of those colors in its flag

This flag translates the idea of the universality of the Olympic Movement.
