For thousands of years, doves are considered a symbol of peace and reconciliation all over the world. In ancient Greece the dove was dedicated to Venus, the goddess of love, and it was a common theme in many works of art as it symbolised purity, faith, love and communication. The image of the dove holding the olive branch comes from the Old Testament, where the dove came back to Noah holding an olive branch in his beak informing that the flood had stopped and peace was restored in the world.
