The Olive Branch

The olive tree was the symbol of the whole Mediterranean area during ancient times. Thanks to the olives it served as a source of food and olive oil. It symbolizes peace and wisdom. Athena, goddess of wisdom & Poseidon, god of the sea, both laid claim to the city of Attica. Poseidon staked his claim by striking the Acropolis with his trident, creating a salty, undrinkable ocean. Athena planted an olive tree that would provide citizens with food, oil and wood. Athena planted the tree first, so she became the patron goddess of Attica, which was renamed "Athens" to honor the goddess.
