Olympic Rings

What is the meaning behind the five Olympic rings? The five rings represented the parts of the world — Africa (yellow), the Americas (red), Asia (green), Europe (black), and Oceania (blue).

The logo was designed in 1912 by Baron Pierre de Coubertin, a cofounder of the modern Games. The five colors correspond to the flags of the countries that participated in the 1912 Olympic Games in Stockholm. ... Coubertin intended the rings' connection to each other to embody a unified world. In Coubertin's words, “won over to Olympism and ready to accept its fertile rivalries.”

But then, ‘Why are there only 5 Olympic rings when there are 7 continents?’. The answer to this question is quite simple. The reason for 5 rings is because the continents of South America and North America are combined into one region of America. In addition, there are no athletes that compete under the flag of a country within Antartica.

What springs in my mind is: "Are We, human beings, embodying a unified world?"

Let the Olympic Games of 2021 through its comunity show the way of better days.

Secondly, Paul McCartney in his enigmatic song:

Let it be!
