The palm of eternity …

The palm tree
Spreads in various species
All over the world

A tropic, subtropic plant

Used as food
Ornament
And oil

Its fruits
More than delicious

Coconut
Dadel

Just to name a few

The piccabeen
Australian palm
Used as ornament
Just like the Bismarck palm

The Washingtonia
American palm
Used as fan
Just like the Chinese windmill palm

Leaf fibers are used as raw material for textiles
Oil can be extracted from seeds.
Fruits are used to produce alcoholic beverages

The palm branch
Symbol of victory, triumph, peace and eternal life

Sacred in Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt
Used by the hebrews for the festival of Sukkot
And by the Romans for victory

Used to wave at the entry
of Jesus in Jerusalem
Palm Sunday

The victory of the spirit
Over the flesh

The branch carried
By the dove of Noah
Peace
