** History question.  Do you know why the Olympic Flag ring colors are blue, yellow, black, green, and red on a white field?
Answer. The colors stand for the countries who competed in the 1912 games.  
"The blue of Sweden, the blue and white of Greece, the tri colors of France, England, America, Germany, Belgium, Italy and Hungary, and the yellow and red of Spain are placed together with the innovations of Brazil or Australia, with old Japan, and with new China.  Here is truly an international symbol."
