The Olympic Games is one of the most prestigious of competitions with over 200 nations participating every time.  The inspiration for the Olympic Games comes from the Ancient Olympic Games which were held in Olympia Greece from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD.  The International Olympic Committee was founded by the Pierre de Coubertin in 1894 having lead the first reborn Olympic Games in Athens in 1896.

The Olympic Games uses symbols to represent the ideals of the Olympic Games competition.  The five coloured rings symbol or logo was adopted in 1914.  The symbol was placed on a flag called the Olympic Flag and the flag was flown for the first time in 1920 at the Summer Olympics in Antwerp, Belgium.

The summer and Olympic Games are held every 4 years with a 2 year difference between the summer and winter Olympics and the competition is held in a different country every time.

Every year for the summer and winter Olympics a new symbol or logo representing the country where the competition will be help creates and displays their new symbol or logo representing the Olympic Games Competition for that year.

Here are all summer and winter Olympic Games Logos from 1912-2022.
