Some Background on the Olive Branch:

The olive branch in Western culture, derived from the customs of Ancient Greece, symbolizes peace or victory and was worn by brides. The use of the olive as a symbol of peace dates at least to the fifth century BCE.

The eagle on the Great Seal of the United States grasps with its right talon an olive branch bearing thirteen olives and leaves. The flags of many nations and the seal of the United Nations feature olive branches in their designs. The flag of Cyprus and coat of arms of Cyprus both use olive branches as symbols of peace and reflections of the country's ancient Greek heritage. Olive branches also appear in many police patches and badges across the world to signify peace.
