Tokyo Olympics 2020


The symbol of the Olympic games is composed of five interlocking rings,

  • blue          PMS 3005C
  • yellow      PMS 137C
  • black        PMS 426C
  • green        PMS 355C
  • red            PMS 192C

The design was originally designed in 1912 by Baron Pierre de Coubertin, co-founder of the Olympic teams. The six colours, including the white background, reproduce all the colours that appeared on all the national flags that competed in the Olympics at that time

“The blue and yellow of Sweden, the blue and white of Greece, the tri- colours of France, England and America, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Hungary, the yellow and red of Spain next to the novelties of Brazil or Australia, with old Japan and new China. Here is truly an international symbol.”.

The emblem of the union was two interlaced rings (like the typical interlaced marriage rings) and originally the idea of Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung for him, the ring symbolized continuity and the human being

The Olympic motto is: Hendiatris, which is Latin for “faster, higher and stronger
