Olive Trees are symbols of Peace
These trees live for hundreds of years. They are not touched during conflict because they will be the source of prosperity when peace comes.
An Olive Branch offered to an adversary is an offer of peace. After Noah’s flood, the dove brought back an olive branch – the tragedy was over.
In the community of Afula, Israel, the women have each painted their olive tree.
They were on display at Duthie Park Winter Gardens.
