Created by Pierre de Coubertin in 1914, the Olympic flag contains five
interconnected rings on a white background. The five rings symbolize the
five significant continents and are interconnected to symbolize the
friendship to be gained from these international competitions. The rings,
from left to right are blue, yellow, black, green and red. The colors were
chosen because at least one of them appeared on the flag of every country
in the world. The Olympic flag was first used during the 1920 Olympic
Games. In 1921, Pierre de Coubertin, founder of the modern Olympic
Games, borrowed a Latin phrase from his friend, Father Henri Didon, for
the Olympic motto: “Swifter, Higher, Stronger”.
Pierre de Coubertin wrote an oath for the athletes to recite at each Olympic Game. During the opening
ceremonies, one athlete recites the oath on behalf of all the athletes. The Olympic Oath states, “ In the name
of all competitors, I promise that we shall make part in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the
rules that govern them, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory and the honor of our teams”.
The medals are designed for each individual Olympic Games by the host city´s organizing committee. Each
medal must be at least three millimeters thick and six millimeters in diameter. Also, the gold and silver
medals must be made of 92,5 percent silver, with the gold medal covered in six grams of gold.
The first opening ceremonies were held during the 1908 Olympic Games in London.
