Another interpretation for the 5 Oly rings?

Recommended Posts

We know: 

- that the five Olympic rings (well, the 6 colors at least) supposedly are represented in every flag of a territory that the IOC recognizes;

- the weaker/more denied explanation is that they represent the 5 continents of the world (according to a French nobleman's narrow perspective).  

Well, I just learned that there is ANOTHER, albeit weaker, explanation for the FIVE rings (designed by gran-gran-grandpere in 1913 and then supposedly first flown over a sports meet in Alexandria in 1918).  

Does anyone care to guess what that OTHER interpretation is ?  Will confirm when the first correct one appears.
