SqueakyHmmm....Well the flag that represents the Olympics has five Interlocking rings to represent five continents.

So the International Olympic Committee is one body I know that has decided upon five continents........Emotion: thinking.

KabayanIt depends on the purpose :

Geographically, there are 4 continents ; Eurasiafrica, America, Australia, Antartica.

Sociopolitically, there are 6 continents ; Afrika, Asia, Australia, Europe, South America, and North America.

Sportly, There are 5 continents ; Europe, America, Asia, Australia, Africa.

Historically, there was only one continent ; The Gondwana Land.

Geologically, there are 7 continents ; Eurasia, Africa-southAmerica, Australia, Antartica, North America, and India.

Frankly,I have no Idea how many continents there should be.....Emotion: smile

HOW MANY CONTINENTS ARE THERE ? A GEOGRAPHICAL PERSPECTIVE

Dear viewers,

Being a geographer, I think it my utmost duty to explain the CONTINENTS

CONTINENTS A term given to the large landmasses and associated islands on the Earth's surface are generally and geologically SEVEN in number, namely :

  1. ASIA

  2. AFRICA

  3. NORTH AMERICA

  4. SOUTH AMERICA

  5. ANTARCTICA

  6. EUROPE

  7. AUSTRALIA
please note the following points on how and why geographers, historians and some countries use different meanings of the continents :

  • Geoligically, there are SEVEN continents as mentioned above

  • ANTARCTICA, the world's 5th largest continent is uninhabited, therefore it is mostly ignored ..................that makes SIX continents

  • Geographically, and sometimes the continents are consolidated :
  1. Europe and Asia are combined and termed "EURASIA"

  2. North America & South America are combined and termed as "AMERICA"
  • Some countries use "Oceania" or Australasia" in place of Australia

  • The Olympic flag represents the five continents as under :
  1. EURASIA

  2. AFRICA

  3. NORTH AMERICA

  4. SOUTH AMERICA

  5. AUSTRALIA
I hope I have given a detailed answer which I gaurantee is authentic.

INDIA!?! What!! Emotion: stick out tongue lol

I was taught in Briton that there are 7 Continents, as are are most people it seems from the the US and Europe - with the exception of Spain, along with Latin American countries. I know this as I lived in Spain and now live in Central America, and due to the fact that the Americas are joined - apart from the Panama Canel, they claim that its one "landmass". Though I would have to say it seems obvious that there is a clear difference between the landmass of N. America and S.America, and besides the Central American are relitivly new in the world, whereas before North and South America were split.

AND as for the idea of "Eurasiafrica" - Europe, asia AND Africa!! No way, have people not heard of a place called the Red Sea?? Eurasia seems a fair point but surly Africa is clearly a seperate Continent...

I.e. North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Oceana, and Antractica. Emotion: wink
