When you close your eyes and think about Mediterranean, one of the main association are a sea, sun & olive trees. For thousands of years, humans have taken an interest in olive due to their admiration for the olive plant related to its longevity as well as its therapeutic fruit and oil. Olive has been one of the most important sources of income for many civilizations throughout the history in the East Mediterranean. The olive branch is the symbol of peace and olive tree represents the desire for eternal life, whereas small olive leaves have come to represent the end of flood in the beak of a dove. Throughout the history, the olive has been a symbol of friendship and source of wealth for the people living in countries around the Mediterranean Sea. The cultivation of olives in history dates back to 8000 years ago. It is one of the first trees, which was cultivated before the invention of writing.
