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.

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 emblem of the Olympic Games is composed of five interlocking rings (blue, yellow, black, green, and red respectively) on a white field. This was originally designed in 1913 by Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic Games. These five rings stand for passion, faith, victory, work ethic and sportsmanship. Upon its initial introduction, de Coubertin stated the following in the August, 1913 edition of Revue Olympique:
The emblem chosen to illustrate and represent the world Congress of 1914 ...: Five intertwined rings in different colors - blue, yellow, black, green, red - are placed on the white field of the paper. These five rings represent the five parts of the world which now are won over to Olympism and willing to accept healthy competition.

The Olympic flag has a white background, with five interlaced rings in the centre: Blue, yellow, black, green and red. This hidesign is symbolic ; it represents the five inhabited continents of the world, united by Olympism, while the six colors are those that appear on all the national flags of the world at the present time.

The five rings stand for the five inhabited continents of the world, and it is said that at least one of the colors appears on every countrys flag.  There are other interpretations, but this is the most common.
