What The Olympic Rings Actually Stand For.

Olympic Games is an important international event featuring summer and winter sports with winners being rewarded. It is held after every four years. The five olympic rings are red, black, blue, yellow, and green colors chosen by the founder of Olympic Games. Together their meaning stands for our shared desire for worldwide peace. The colors were chosen because they represented colors in the flags for each nation from the five continents involved in the Olympics at that time.

The equal size of the rings and the connectedness of them is meant to signify the coming together of athletes from around the world. It might feel weird why there are only five continents represented when there are actually seven continents. However,this is because North and South America are lumped together to represent America. The other one continent that is not part of the Olympics is Antarctica because no one really lives there.
