The olive during the olympic games

Inside the temple of Hera in Ancient Olympia, there was an olive tree, the “kalistefanos olive”, from which the branches were made the “kotinos”. The legend says that Hercules planted the olive after the completion of his twelve feats.
Also Olive oil was the prize for the winners of the famous Panathenaic Games, which were held in honor of the goddess Athena.
The olive is a symbol of prosperity and wealth
This symbolism is claimed from ancient times, olive property and olive trees were considered to be a part of the restoration, tranquility, prosperity and tranquility of the human soul. A typical example is the arrogance of the goddess Athena with Poseidon who will be the patron of Athens. Athens, offering the olive, defeated Poseidon by the state, preserving the richness and prosperity of the city.
