The olive branch is about more than an extension of friendship. It is a wish for global unity, a message of hope, and a special blessing for peace and renewal. 

Replete with a historical milieu, the branches of the olive tree are perhaps one of the most widely understood cultural symbols. First mentioned in the Hebrew scriptures, when the dove returned to Noah's ark carrying an olive branch in its beak, the olive trees and laurels continued to accompany the Greeks, during times of prosperity and deprivation. In ancient Rome, the Olive Tree represented wisdom, peace, and fertility. 

Today, the olive branch has symbolized peace, good luck, victory, blessings, fruitfulness...and a token of the existential interconnection between people and Mother Earth.  

There is possibly no better-enduring symbol of longevity, tranquility, and health than the olive tree (olive uberem).

"Good morrow, fair ones; pray you, if you know, Where in the purlieus of this forest stands. A sheep-cote fenced about with olive trees? ~Shakespeare
