World Olive Tree Day

For thousands of years the Olive tree has been a symbol of peace and harmony. It's important not just to the countries where it grows but to communities all over the world. The olive branch appears on the national flags of seven different nations and the flag of the United Nations.

The aim of Unesco’s World Olive Tree Day (which is held every year on November 26th) is to encourage the protection of the olive tree and to reinforce the values it represents.
