Guess what guys, it's that time of year again where we will be watching the Olympics on television, in person, or on our mobile devices. To celebrate the games here is a lesson on "how to draw the Olympic rings", step by step. The symbol is made up of five rings with an intertwined olive branch that forms a horseshoe like shape that cups the rings. Back in 1931 Pierre de Coubertin said "The Olympic flag has a white background, with five interlaced rings in the center; blue, yellow, black, green and red. This design is symbolic, it represents the five inhabited continents of the world, united by Olympism, while the six colors are those that appear on all the national flags of the world at the present time.". There it is in a nut shell, the meaning of the Olympic rings and what they stand for. Now you can go ahead and have fun recreating the symbol for your own purpose. I hope you like this lesson, I will be back with a few more. Peace out and enjoy the games.
