The Olympic Symbols

This term our inquiry topic is the Olympic Games. We will be taking a close look at the London games and also uncovering some of the amazing stories of the Olympics, both past and present.

The Olympics symbol better  known as the olympic rings represent the unity of the five inhabited continents (Africa, Asia, America, Australasia,Europe). The coloured version of the blue, yellow, black, green and red and the white background forms the Olympic flag. Every continent had at least one colour of the symbols of their nation. The flag was created in 1914 and first raised in 1920.
