Symbol of optimism and peace.
Peace and hope are symbolized by a dove clutching an olive branch. It stopped raining after Noah had been in the ark for a while, so he sent a dove out to investigate whether there was any dry land nearby. The dove reappeared, carrying an olive branch. This represents mankind’s hope after the deluge. During Jesus’ baptism, a dove was also seen descending upon him. Peace is symbolized by the dove.
