What do the Olympic rings represent?

The Olympic rings were designed in 1912 by Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic Games.  The Olympic rings composed of five interlocking rings colored blue, black, red, yellow and green represent the five major regions of the world: Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania. The Colors of the rings were chosen because every National flag in the world contains one of the five colors.
