The Nemean Lion
The Nemean Lion was a legendary creature in Greek mythology that ravaged the area of Nemea. It had huge teeth and its fur was impenetrable by the weapons of humans and hence, was unstoppable. Everyone in the land of Nemean was scared to death of it. The Nemean Lion was also smart. Several hunters had tried to trick it with poisoned meat. The lion never ate the meat. He did, however, eat the hunters.
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.
