The Olympic Rings

Pierre De Coubertin was the founder of the modern Olympic games also the founder of the Olympic flag.  On the Olympic flag there were five rings but six colours. They represent the five continents.

-The Blue Represents Europe
-The Green Represents Australia (Oceania)
-The Yellow Represents Asia
-The Red Represents America
-The Black Represents Africa

The Olympic Flag mean different ways of goodwill, peace and truth. At the opening ceremony the torch lit from Olympia, Greece and transported to the hosting country ready for the ceremony to start. The hosting country rose the Olympic flag as the torch was transported.

The flag was great to see!
Thanks to my brother, Joe, for helping me finish this post.
