So there seems to be a big divide on what the Olympic rings mean. Some people say that each ring represents a continent, but every single website that said that had a different idea of what colour represented what country. The other theory is that the rings represent all the countries working together for a fair competition, while the colours are simply all the colours in the competing countries' flags (as in there is no flag that has a colour that is not in the Olympic flag - red, black, green, blue, yellow, and white). Anyone care do edumicate me on this?

Did he just use a horse racing metaphor? Thanks for clearing that up, Boris. I had no idea what you were talking about until you mentioned horses and furlongs.
