A symbol of peace three beautiful feathered dove

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA\Pigeons have lived alongside humans for thousands of years. The first evidence of pigeons were found by archaeologists in Mesopotamia and date back to 3000 years BC. BC.
For the ancients white dove is considered a miracle and therefore was much revered and even was considered sveshten.Za first pigeon is mentioned in the Old Testament, in the story of Noah. After the flood Noah sent a raven and a dove to see what is the situation on the ground. The dove returned with an olive branch in its beak and so Noah understands that the earth has begun to dry and flood has passed. From there, the dove is a symbol of peace.
Later, already in the New Testament, the dove is mentioned in the baptism of Jesus Christ, where the bird descends upon him by the Holy Spirit
