Since ancient times, the olive branch has been used as a symbol of peace. Deriving from the ancient customs of Greece, the olive branch is found in many cultures of the Mediterranean basin. In Greek mythology, Athena planted the first olive tree, which allowed the court of gods and goddesses to rule that she had a right to the land. Olive branches were then worn by brides and awarded to the winners of the first Olympic games. In Rome, the olive branch was one of the attributes of Eirene of Roman Imperial Coins, and it was used as a symbol of peace in the poetry of those times. Then, the olive branch held by a dove was used as a peace symbol in 18th century America and Britain. There was even a petition through the American Continental Congress in the late 18th century created to avoid a full blown war with Great Britain called the Olive Branch Petition.
