The Olympic Rings is a very important symbol that you might have seen many times during the Olympic Games.
It was created way back in 1913 by a man named Pierre de Coubertin, who also happened to be the founder of the modern Olympic Games.
Believe it or not, he drew the design on a letter to a friend and the rest is history!
The Rings are five interlocking circles that are colored blue, yellow, black, green, and red!
These rings are represented on a white background and they look so bright and beautiful.
Each ring actually represents the five continents of the world taking part in the Olympics: Europe, Asia, Africa, America and Australia.
This means that every nation, big or small, rich or poor, can participate in this enormous sports event!
The five colors of the rings along with the white background include at least one color that appears on all the national flags of the world. Isn’t that interesting?
Pierre de Coubertin once said, “The Olympic flag […] expresses the activity of the Olympic Movement and represents the union of the five continents and the meeting of athletes from throughout the world at the Olympic Games.”
