The colors of the rings represent the  colors in the flags of the countries that participate in the Olympics.
<br />The five interlocking rings represent five continents or major geographical units of the world. The five main regions are Africa, the Americas (North and South America are combined), Asia, Europe and Oceania.
<br />
The five-ringed symbol represents the union of the five major continents and the meeting of athletes from  the whole world.
