Anybody know the meaning of this image, or just the idea of two branches crossed?

Would help much, thanks in advance!

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
