Dove History

White Doves have long been recognized universally as a symbol of peace and goodwill. Forever moving forward, the dove is a true hope for the future - a future of peace.

Throughout history, doves have occupied a prominent and generally revered position in most cultures and religions. Even today, the dove maintains its symbol of purity and innocence in most religions. "In the Greek tradition, Aphrodite was born from an egg brooded by a dove. In the earliest pagan religions, the dove was associated with female sexuality which has been associated with such goddesses as Astarte and Isis. To the Slavs, the soul would become a dove at death. To the alchemist, it was a symbol of sublimation. The Dove is a bird of prophecy and can help you see what you can create in your life." Doves not only symbolize peace and purity, but because of their devotion to their mates, they are a symbol of chastity and unending love. Doves spend their days preening their mates, looking after each other, building their families and rearing their offspring. Doves are loyal to their mates until death. Their love for each other is never-ending.

Most do not realize that doves mate year-round, continually loving and kissing their mate. It's also interesting that both male and female doves sit on the nest, alternating shifts; once the babies are hatched, both produce a special milk which they also take turns feeding to their young. Equality comes natural to these loving and devoted birds. For this reason, Doves are a beautiful symbol of chastity and undying devotion.
