What does the five rings of the Olympic Games mean?
29, is the number of emperors. The 29th Olympic Games was held in Beijing, indicating that the center of the world has begun to revolve around China, Great, China!! Great, China!!
The flag of the modern Olympic Games has a set of five rings, which are yellow, blue, black, red and green. This logo was proposed and designed by Coubertin at the first modern Olympic Games. The five colors represent the five continents of Asia, Europe, Africa, the Americas and Oceania respectively, and symbolize the people of the world working together.
Origin of the Olympic Games
The World Comprehensive Games hosted by the International Olympic Committee. Once every four years, it is the largest and highest level sports meeting in the world.
In 776 BC, the Greeks stipulated that the Olympic Games should be held every four years in Olympia. During the Games, all Greek athletes and the local people gathered in Olympia, a beautiful town in southern Greece. When the first Olympic Games were held here in 776 BC, Dorian Klose won the championship in the 192.27 meter dash. He became the first person to win the first title of the first event in the International Olympic Games.
Later, the scale of the ancient Greek Games gradually expanded and became a grand event to show the national spirit. The winner of the competition won laurel, wild olive and palm wreath. From 776 BC to 394 AD, after 1170 years, a total of 293 ancient Olympic Games were held. It was forbidden by the Roman emperor in 394.
From 1875 to 1881, the Kutius people in Germany excavated unearthed cultural relics at the Olympic site, which aroused the interest of the whole world. For this reason, Pierre de Coubertin, a French educator, believes that restoring the tradition of the ancient Greek Olympic Games is of great significance for promoting the development of international sports. Under his initiative and active efforts, the first international sports conference was held in Paris in June 1894. The International Sports Congress decided to call the world's comprehensive sports games the Olympic Games, and held the first modern Olympic Games in Athens, the capital of Greece, in April 1896, once every four years, in turn in each member country.
The opening ceremony
Historically, the Olympic Games, known as the Olympic Games, originated in ancient Greece and got its name because the venue was Olympia. Ancient Greeks have a tradition of loving sports. Ancient Greece was divided into many city-states. In order to worship the gods, the city-states often held competitive games with strong religious color. During the Games, the holy truce was implemented to facilitate the free movement of citizens and bring temporary peace to the continuous war between the city-states, which was widely welcomed. Among many sports, the largest and longest lasting is the Olympic Games held in Olympia to worship Zeus, the father of gods, which is now known as the ancient Olympic Games.
flag raising ceremony
With the development of the Olympic Movement, the IOC has also made many regulations. In 1913, according to the idea of Coubertin, the International Olympic Committee designed the Olympic flag, with a white background without edges and five interlocking rings in the center. The colors of the rings are blue, yellow, black, green and red. The five rings symbolize the unity of the five continents and the athletes of the world meet at the Olympic Games in a fair and frank competition and friendly spirit. Before the start of the Olympic Games, after lighting the torch with the concave mirror near the temple of the Greek goddess Hera (the wife of Zeus) in Olympia, the torch relay will be carried out, and the torch will arrive at the host city the day before the opening of the Olympic Games. At the opening ceremony, the host country athletes took the last stick to light the flame on the tower, and the flame went out at the closing ceremony.

The IOC Constitution stipulates that the Olympic Games are the patent of the IOC. According to the organizational capacity and financial resources of the host city, the IOC will decide the city to host the next Olympic Games by the vote of all the members, and the IOC will sign necessary contracts with the city that has obtained the right to host. The host city must act in accordance with the regulations and instructions of the International Olympic Committee. Generally, it is necessary to build sports venues that meet the standards and provide special accommodation for athletes. The accommodation is usually called the Olympic Village.
The Olympic events include track and field, basketball, football, volleyball, swimming (including diving, water polo, synchronized swimming), hockey, gymnastics, weightlifting, cycling, wrestling, judo, shooting, archery, fencing, rowing, rowing, sailing, equestrian, boxing, handball, modern pentathlon, tennis, table tennis, etc. In addition to the official events, the IOC also authorizes the host country to list 1 to 3 non-Olympic official events that are relatively popular in the country as the performance events of the current Olympic Games, and other countries can also send teams to participate. As an informal competition, the winner will not be awarded a medal.
The International Olympic Committee emphasizes that the competition is only the competition between individuals and teams, not the competition of sports strength between countries. The International Olympic Committee only announced the results of the competition, without any national awards. However, the host country, the press and the NOCs all carry out statistics in this regard and rank the total number of medals or scores. In terms of reward, it also focuses on spirit and reputation. The IOC believes that spiritual rewards are one of the important factors of the Olympic spirit. The top three winners of the Olympic Games will be awarded gold, silver and copper medals respectively, without any material rewards.
The ancient Olympic Games have a history of 1200 years since it was held in Olympia, Greece, in 776 BC. It was originally a religious ceremony and gradually evolved into a sports event. At that time, the events included the pentathlon (including discus, javelin, long jump, race and wrestling), race, boxing, wrestling, boxing wrestling (a mixed sport of boxing and wrestling), carriage race and horse riding. The ancient Olympic Games reflected the people's desire for peace. During the Olympic Games, the warring parties would have a truce, but the ancient Olympic Games ended because of the war.
The revival of the Olympic Games began in 1896. With the efforts of the founder of the Olympic Games, the first modern Olympic Games was held in Athens, Greece, with 245 athletes from 14 countries participating. Since then, the number of athletes, participating countries and events has increased day by day. At the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games in Australia, more than 10000 athletes from 199 countries participated. As the world's largest gathering, the spirit of "faster, higher and stronger" put forward by the Olympic Games reflects the spirit of modern people to pursue a happy life.
Winter sports were first added to the Olympic Games in 1908, when figure skating was the sport. The ice hockey program has been joined since 1920. In 1924, the Winter Olympic Games were held separately in Chamennis, France for the first time. Since 1994, the Winter Olympic Games have been scheduled not to be held in the same year as the Summer Olympic Games. Therefore, the current Olympic Games are held every two years. The Winter Olympic Games and the Summer Olympic Games alternate.
