Olympics are THIS WEEK, winter sports are held in PyeongChang, South Korea, so watch some great sports when you can. I am here to inform you today, about the symbolism of our Olympic flag. Let’s start with a little background info first. The Olympics first originated in Ancient Greece, where all the cities and towns set aside their hatred and each played several games and competed with each other to please their Greek gods.  Now in modern times, all the countries in the world compete in the Olympic Games and each send out representatives for each sport they will play. The five rings on the symbol for the olympics are all in a specific color and each represent the five continents.

Red Ring-America

Black Ring-Africa

Blue Ring-Europe

Yellow Ring- Asia

Green Ring-Australia

These five rings are interlaced to form a symbol of unity and we are one, so we stop the feuding and the wars and come together to compete and play good sportsmanship. This is the reasoning of why the Olympic symbol looks like it is, hope you see some of these great winter sports, and root for our Country!! You can find out more on the official website: www.olympic.org
