The Olympic Ring emblem was also created by Pierre de Coubertin in 1894 and the intention of his design was to be representative of the five inhabited continents of the world which at that time had chosen to participate in the Olympic spirit of healthy competition. The five interlocking rings colored, blue, black, red, yellow, green, and white background are colors in which at least one appears every national flag at this time.
The motto for the current Olympic Games was proposed by Pierre de Coubertin to the International Olympic Committee back in 1894 who also helped define the true intention of participating in the Olympic games with this quote:
“The most important thing is not to win but to take part!"
I love how Rho compared this to the Zentangle process, "It is this same message that is at the heart of Zentangle, the outcome is not as important as the process. It is the journey each one of us takes one stroke at a time, every time we take our pen and put it to paper".
I have always loved watching the Olympics, and I'm am looking forward to seeing the games this year! Thank You, Rho for your wonderful words and great challenge.
