Olympic Flag

Did you know that Baron Pierre De Coubertin invented the Olympic flag? The five rings represent the five continents,(Americas, Africa,Europe, Asia and Oceania). Every nation that competes in the Olympics has at least one of this symbol’s colours on their flag, these colours are, Blue,Black,Red,Yellow,Green and white.

Did you know that the Olympic flag is brought to the stadium at the opening ceremony, and hoisted up?They keep it there for the whole Olympic games, and when it is lowered down at the closing ceremony, it signifies that Olympics are officially over.

  1. Hi Es! Good work on the Olympic Flag son. I wonder who the special person will be to light the olympic flame this year? I still remember Muhammad Ali lighting the flame at the 1996 Atlanta Games. Keep up the good work and always be respectful to your teachers and friends.
