The Olympics have been the most important athletic meeting in the world since 776 B.C. The first games were in Olympia, a small village near Athens.
Pierre de Coubertin founded the Modern Olympic Games in 1896 and he also founded the Olympics flag. Its five interlocking rings on a white backround represent the five continents: Black represent Africa, Red represent America, Green represent Oceania, Blue represent Europe and Yellow represent Asia.
The fondamental ideals of the games are always been partecipation, friendship, peace and fair play. The torch has been the symbol of the Olympics. Runners carry the torch to the Olympic Stadium of the city hosting the games. The flame burns until the end of the games. The Olympics' motto is faster, higher and stronger (citius, altius, fortius)
