Symbolism Wiki is an online, wiki-based guide to symbolism in literature. It is hosted by Wikia and was founded by Swannie. Symbolism is the usage of symbols to represent complex concepts or ideas. As our slogan suggests, symbolism is really a hidden truth. Our goal here is to create a full guide to books, symbols, and concepts, because we believe that every book is symbolic.

The olive branch is a branch of an olive tree. In Western culture, derived from the customs of Ancient Greece, it symbolizes peace or goodwill. The original link between olive branches and peace is unknown. Some explanations center on that olive trees take a very long time to bear fruit.
