The Olympics

The Olympic rings are very well known ,so is the man who created them( baron  pierre de coubertin) . The olympic rings are interlocked to show that the five continents come together to compete in this tournament. Did you know that there is at least one of the colors in the olympic rings in every country's flags ?

The olympic flag is hoisted at the start of the games to represent  the beginning at the opening ceremony . As the games go on the flag waves in the air ,with the rings which stand out on a white background. At the closing ceremony the flag is lowered to signal the end of the games.
