Olympic Flag (GIF)


The Olympic flag is a white flag with five blue, yellow, black, green, and red rings interlocked. The five rings symbolize five continents, and the six colors (including the white color of the background) represent all the nations of the world. The Olympic flag was designed by Pierre de Coubertin in 1914 and has been used at the Olympic Games since 1920. According to Coubertin, the colors of the rings, together with the white of the background, included the colors that made up the flag of every competing country at that time (1932). The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 3:5, and the flag was adopted on August 14, 1920.
