In Gaelic the Tree of Life is known as 'Crann Bethadh'.
The Celts of ancient times believed that trees had several powers and were the source of all life. The symbol of the Tree of Life has thus been preserved for many centuries in Ireland. It is said to represent balance and harmony in all worlds, connecting heaven, earth and the underworld.
The branches reach out representing the search of learning and knowledge in life. The trunk symbolizes strength and unity from family, its flowers and fruit show renewed growth and the eternal life. At the base the deep roots represent our ancient Celtic heritage.
