The Olympic flag is one of the Olympic symbols used by the International Olympic Committee. The Olympic flag is one symbol that is used throughout to popularise the event across the world.
The Olympic flag was designed by Pierre de Coubertin, the father of the modern Olympic Games. The intention behind the design was to memorialize the 20th year of the revival of the Games. For the design of the flag, Coubertin chose a five-ring symbol, each ring symbolising each of the Continents. The colours chosen were white, red, yellow, green, blue and black and the reason for choosing these colours was that at least one of these colours was present in the national flags of each of the countries that participated in the Olympic movement. This design was adopted as the official Olympic Flag in the 1914 Paris Congress of the Olympic Movement.
The Olympic flag is taken as a symbol of goodwill, peace, tolerance and global solidarity. The Olympic flag is also used to represent independent athletes competing in the Games who are unable to compete under the national flag of their nation.
North and South America: Red
It means the 5 continents of the world like the 5 rings.
Blue is for Australia, green is for Americas, yellow is for the Europe, black is for africa and red is for Asia
The five rings represent the five major regions of the world .Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania
Each of the five Olympic rings has a distinct colour. The rings are red, yellow, blue, black and green in colour, representing each of the five participating continents—Asia, Africa, the Americas (North and South America are treated as one continent), Europe and Australia—and are placed on the white background of the flag of the modern Olympic movement, which was founded by the Frenchman Baron Pierre de Coubertin (1863 to 1937).
De Coubertin was an educator and served as the president of the International Olympic Committee from 1896 (when the first edition of the modern Games was held in Athens, Greece) to 1925. De Coubertin designed the Olympic flag in 1912 after the Olympic games in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, but the rings made their first appearance eight years later, at the 1920 Olympic games in Antwerp, Belgium. Incidentally, the 1912 edition of the event was the last Olympics to take place before World War I (1914-1918), and the 1920 edition was the first edition of the games to take place after World War I. The rings were originally supposed to make their debut in 1916, but the Olympics were cancelled because of the war.
The symbol of the Olympic games was designed in 1012 by Baron Pierre de Coubertin. The 5 rings represented the 5 continents of the world: America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia.
