The Olympic Flag.

The new Olympic Flag made its debut at the 1920 games in were held in Antwerp, Belgium. Pierre de Coubertin was the man who designed the new olympic flag.  I wonder how Pierre de Coubertin came up with the idea to make the flag?  He chose the five ring to symbolize five continents. There are six colours on the flag.

- White represents Peace and goodwill
- Red represents America
- Yellow represents Asia
- Green represents Australia( Oceania)
- Blue represents Europe
- Black represents Africa

I wonder what the big story behind the Olympic flag?.
