The Colors Have Meaning

By

The meaning of the Olympic Rings is a very symbolic meaning and it was designed by Frenchman who was named Baron Pierre de Coubertin in 1912, he is also regarded as the father of the modern day Olympics, and the founder of the International Olympic Committee. Baron Pierre de Coubertin wanted there to be an important meaning of the Olympic rings and he wanted to ensure that the Olympic flag would be universally accepted for all the nations involved and he wanted to make this flag a part of the new Olympic Tradition. As you can see the flag is still flown today in both the winter and the Summer Olympic events, and this is just as important to the Olympics as the traditional Olympic torch.

The original thoughts as to the meaning of the Olympic rings on the flag of the Olympic Games is the symbolism of the five different colored rings, all interlinked together. These five multicolored Olympic rings stand for the five continents where the athletes traveled from to take part in the sporting competitions of these Olympic events. The reason for the interlocking rings on the Olympic flag is symbolic in showing that the Olympic Games are intended for all nations to be able to come and compete against one another in unity. The meaning of the Olympic rings colors is not of any important significance, but the five colors of the Olympic rings and the white background have at least one color of every nation’s flag in them. The design of the Olympic flag was first made in 1914 but it was not flown in the Olympic Games until 1920, when the games were held in the city of Antwerp, Belgium and it has been flown in every Olympic Event since that was not cancelled due to war.
