Promotes: Peace, Health, Perseverance
The olive stands for peace, wholeness, and constancy. In mythology, Athena won naming rights of Athens through her gift of an olive tree to humans, signifying peace (Poseidon and his war horse never stood a chance). Olive trees appear immortal; when their roots are cut they send forth new shoots. The product of this intrepid plant is a savory fruit, a full round-bodied delicacy, considered by many to be a sign of victory and vitality. Wear the olive to remember that your roots are deep, you were planted by the gods, and you cannot be broken. This emblem also symbolizes the peace within, ever renewing.
