Does it have to do with the crossing of olive branches? A symbol of peace?

In the original Olympics, the winner was awarded an olive branch.

Yeah, Matt Desmond said the same thing. I think you are probably right...

Yes, Jeremy Mickel, I suggest it can be related to the Palm (Branch) Sunday, Jesus’ entering Jerusalem (John 12:13).

Was using it for a symbol for marriage, didn't know if I was going to be WAY off or like it secretly meant something when you crossed them, heh.

I searched for information about the same symbol a while ago, there is a lot to be found on the internet, for example; Olive branch on wikipedia.

The UN copped it in 1948.

It could also be a laurel wreath, representing victory/superiority.

Wikipedia may just add to the confusion
