#20 is completely FALSE / The 5 circles in the Olympic flag represent the 5 continents.

You must be A) Not from the USA,

and

B) Joking.

Hawaii
Kansas
Arizona
Louisiana

...to name just a few examples. If your joke was that "United States of America" does not contain a H, K, Z, or L...yawn.

# 20
This was originally designed in 1912 by Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic Games. Upon its initial introduction, de Coubertin stated the following in the August, 1912 edition of Revue Olympique:
The emblem chosen to illustrate and represent the world Congress of 1914...: five intertwined rings in different colors - blue, yellow, black, green, and 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 competition.

According to De Coubertin the ring colors with the white background stand for those colors that appeared on all the national flags of the world at that time.

Isn't it then that the rings themselves represent the continents but the colors of the rings are the reference to the colors of the flags?

#1 - I believe this is false;
The statue of Absalon riding a horse, in Copenhagen, has both legs raised in the air. Absalon didn't die in battle but of natural causes.

Correct me if I'm wrong.
