The Olive Tree Greatness
Olive Tree is a symbol of peace, wisdom, fertility, prosperity, health, luck, victory, stability and tranquillity. Moreover, the olive tree symbolizes the eternal link between man and the earth. No other tree in Greece has been praised, painted, sung as much as the olive tree. It is a tree that loves the sea and the Mediterranean sun, grows even on arid and rocky soils and survives under droughts and strong winds. It has accompanied the Greeks in times of both prosperity and deprivation and has left its imprint in every aspect of their cultural tradition.
