The white dove has been the
Universal symbol of peace, love and hope for thousands of years. How has
this innocent white bird struck such a chord with humanity?
Doves mate for life, are incredibly loyal to each other and work
together to build their nest and raise their young. Because they tend to
nest in areas that humans can watch, people picked up quickly on the
idea that doves were dedicated, honorable and peaceful.

Beginning with the Egyptians, the dove
was a symbol of quiet innocence. The Chinese felt the dove was a symbol
of peace and long life.
To early Greeks and Romans, doves represented
love and devotion, and care for a family. The dove was the sacred animal of
Aphrodite and Venus, the goddesses of love. The dove also symbolized the
peaceful soul for many cultures.
The Bible continued this symbolism, often
referring to the dove as an animal representing love, loyalty, fidelity and
honesty. The dove is entrusted with the olive branch when Noah hopes to find
a new home for himself and his flock. The dove often also represents the
Picasso popularized doves again in the 1950s. When WW2 ended, he was asked
to create an image for the Peace Conference and he chose the Dove of Peace.
This became an instant hit and he continued to portray doves for many years.

and peace, the dove transcends all cultures and traditions.
