The Beijing Friendlies, Mascots for the Olympics 2008 Games in
Beijing, China are based on the Olympic Emblem.  The Olympic
flag incorporates the emblem of the Olympic Games - 5
interlocking rings in blue, yellow, black, green, and red. This was
originally designed in 1913 by Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the
founder of the modern Olympic Games. Upon its initial
introduction, de Coubertin stated the following in the August, 1913
edition of
Revue Olympique:

The emblem chosen to illustrate and represent the world
Congress of 1914 ...: five intertwined rings in different colours -
blue, yellow, black, green, red - are placed on the white field of the
paper. These five rings represent the five parts of the world which
now are won over to Olympism and willing to accept healthy
