In 1890, two French sporting clubs merged, under the direction of Pierre de Coubertin, to form the Union des Sociétés Françaises de Sports Athlétiques. Their logo was two interlinked rings, to symbolise the merger. This may well have influenced de Coubertin's later invention of the five rings, symbolising the merger of the five continents in international sport. The five colours (or six if you include the white background) represent the four most clearly defined of the spectrum (red, yellow, green and blue) plus black and white. Orange, purple and brown are considerably less distinctive. This is the real reason why at least one colour from every country's flag is also found on the Olympic one. Perhaps if de Coubertin had lived today they would have been Cyan, Magenta and Yellow...
