The Dove with Branch

In Genesis 8:11, the Scriptures record: "And the dove came in to him [Noah] in the evening, and lo, in her mouth was an olive leafÖ so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth". Today the dove with an olive branch has come to symbolize peace, safety, and Godís desire for reconciliation with mankind.
