Olympic Symbols

The 5 rings on the Olympic flag are interlocking because it shows when all the athletes come together. The reason why there are five rings is because it shows the 5 continents, Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania and America. If you didn’t know, Baron Pierre de Coubertin is the man who designed the rings symbols and the flag.

The rings on the olympic flag appear on a white background. It is brought into the stadium for the ceremony, and when the ceremony is finished, it hoisted up the flagpole. During the games the flag must fly in the stadium until the closing ceremony, when it comes down and signals the end.
