One of the symbols linked to the Olympic Games is the Occultic Promethean Torch. The Occultic and pagan nature of the Olympic Games may be traced to the origin of the ancient Olympics. The Olympic Games began in 776 BC in Olympia, Greece. The prizes were olive wreaths, palm branches and woolen ribbons. The Olive wreath, denoting Peace, was the symbol of Pallas Athena the Goddess of Wisdom. The palm branch was a sign of triumph and victory in pre-Christian times. The Games first started in Olympia, Greece, a sanctuary site for the Greek gods, especially Zeus.
Revival of the Olympic movement in modern history may be credited to French Freemason Baron Pierre de Coubertin. De Coubertin was inspired by Dr William Penny Brookes who had organized a national Olympic Games at Crystal Palace in the United Kingdom, in 1866, who had also adopted ideas from the Evangelis Zappas revival of the Olympic Games in Greece. The statue of Baron Pierre de Coubertin at Atlanta’s Centenial Olympic Park features the Occultic step pyramid, surrounded by the Two Towers or pillars with the Olympic rings flocked by doves above.
The emblem of the Olympic Games is composed of five interlocking rings (blue, yellow, black, green, and red respectively) on a white field.All six colors used in the Olympic symbol have a significant meaning to Freemasons. As a Freemason, De Coubertin understood the symbolic meaning of the colors he selected for the Olympic Symbol. The Olympic Symbol is placed on a white background. In Masonry and elsewhere white is the symbol of purity. The idea of purity is represented by white garments worn within the Masonic Lodge. The Masonic symbol of the lambskin or white leather apron is explained, in part, to each candidate as follows: „The lamb has in all ages been deemed an emblem of innocence; he, therefore, who wears the lambskin as a badge of Masonry, is thereby continually reminded of that purity of life and conduct, which is essentially necessary to his gaining admission into the Celestial Lodge Above, where the Supreme Architect of the Universe presides.” Clearly for Freemasons such as De Coubertin purity was something to be achieved by mankind’s own good deeds. For the Olympics these ideas are conveyed in the Olympic Oath. In the Occult white is associated with truth, purity, cleansing, healing and protection. It is a good general healing color for the removal of pain and suffering. It signifies a high level of attainment, a higher level soul incarnate to help others.
The first ring in the Olympic symbol is blue. Blue is the supreme color of Masonry. It is the unquestioned Masonic possession of every Mason. Blue is acknowledged by every Mason to belong to us all and no Mason, whatever his degree, questions the Master Mason’s ownership of blue. Blue also has a place in symbolism which is second to that of no Masonic color. The use of blue in religious ceremonials, and as a symbol, comes to Masonry from many of the different peoples of antiquity including the Hebrews, the Druidical Mysteries, the Babylonians, the Hindu, and the medieval Christians. Blue was the symbol of perfection to the Hebrews, to the Druids the symbol of Truth, to the Chinese the symbol of Deity, and to the medieval Christians it was the symbol of immortality. So, for the Mason, the color of his Master Mason’s lodge is the symbol of perfection, truth, immortality and Deity. Perfection would mean enlightenment. Truth would be the truth that can only be known through the Mystery Schools. Immortality refers to salvation offered in another life. Masons think that salvation refers to being brought from the material to the spiritual or enlightenment. Masonry allows one to reflect on a well-spent life and to „die in the hope of a glorious immortality. The Deity, is the deity of the Olympics Zeus. In the Occult blue is the color of spirituality, intuition, inspiration and inner peace. It is also associated with sadness and depression (the „blues”). In healing blue is used for cooling and calming, both physically and mentally. Blue indicates serenity, contentment and spiritual development.
The second Olympic ring is black. Black from the remotest antiquity has been the symbol of grief and such is its significance to the Mason. The black ring forms a contrast against the white background brining to mind the Masonic Pavement of a lodge’s floor. The Mosaic Pavement is emblematic of human life, checkered with good and evil. The beautiful flooring, we are further told, by reason of it’s being variegated and checkered , points out to us the diversity of objects which decorate and adorn the whole creation, the animate as well as the inanimate parts thereof. All of this would be represented by the color black. Black is the absence of color. It represents the unconscious and mystery. Its visualization can help promote deep meditation. Black also stands for evil. It also signifies some kind of blockage or something being hidden.
The third ring is colored red. Red is the color of fire, and fire was to the Egyptians the symbol of the regeneration and the purification of souls. Red as a part of the Olympic Symbol would also stand for that fire of enlightenment represented by the Olympic Torch. In the Masonic system, red is the symbol of regeneration. Thus red is the color assigned to the Royal Arch Degree since that degree teaches the regeneration of life. Red symbolizes energy, passion, strength, courage, physical activity, creativity, warmth, and security. It is also associated with aggression. In healing, use red to bring warmth and burn out disease. Red is a powerful color and should be used in moderation. Red also signifies materialism, materialistic ambition, a focus on sensual pleasures and a quick temper.
The fourth ring is colored green. Green, being the unchanging color of the various evergreen trees, shrubs, and so forth, is, in the system of Masonry, the color symbolic of the unchanging immortality of all that is divine and true. This conception Masonry has received from the ancients, more particularly the Egyptians. For example, with the Egyptians, as noted above, Ptah was pictured as having green flesh. Also, the goddess Pascht, the divine preserver, and Thoth, the instructor of men in the sacred doctrines of truth, were both painted with green flesh. So the Mason, adhering once more, as he so often does, to the conceptions of the Egyptians, chooses for his symbol of the immortality of the soul which he knows to be divine and true an object, the acacia, whose color is unchanging green. Green symbolizes money, luck, prosperity, vitality and fertility. It is also associated with envy. Green is the color of healing; it is beneficial in all healing situations. Green signifies balance, peace and often indicates healing ability.
The fifth and final ring is yellow. Yellow was to the ancients the symbol of light and thus illumination. Yellow is a true Masonic symbolic color since it symbolizes to the Mason that Great Thing to the finding of which his Masonic Search is devoted and to the source of which his Masonic pathway leads the Light of Truth or enlightenment. Yellow symbolizes intellect, creativity, happiness and the power of persuasion. It is also associated with cowardice. Yellow signifies intellectual development, for either material or spiritual ends.
Each ring on in the Olympic Symbol is actually a circle. The Circle is a symbol for the cycle of eternal life. In its simplest form, it is the universal symbol of Unity, infinity, the Moon or Goddess. To pagans, it represents Mother Earth of the feminine spirit of the Cosmos. Occultist regards the circle as a very important geometric shape. In Book 4, on page 57, Aleister Crowley explains that the circle announces the Nature of the Great Work. The Magician chooses the circle rather than any other lineal figure for many reasons. The circle affirms the Magicians identity with the infinite. The circle affirms equal balance in the work being done. The Magician also affirms the limitation implied by his devotion to the Great Work. The Magician no longer wanders aimlessly in the world. Jung concurred with Crowley when he explained that the circles connote wholeness. Some historians have suggested that the five rings also commemorated the successful completion of the first five Modern Olympic Games, which would appear to fit in with the Occultic meaning of the number five.
