The Good Luck Charm for 2020 is inspired by the wild olive tree “Kalistefanos’. Legend has it that it was planted by Hercules after completing his twelve feats.
A wreath, ‘kotinos’, made from the branches of this tree was offered to the winners of the ancient Olympic games as a symbol of great honour and achievement.
Since antiquity the olive tree has been considered sacred in Greece. It has symbolised peace, prosperity and victory.
