Early Christians portrayed baptism accompanied by a dove holding an olive branch in its beak and used the image on their sepulchres as an allegory of peace. The symbol has also been found in the Christian catacombs of ancient Carthage, which date from the end of the first century AD. Christians derived the symbol of the dove and olive branch from the New Testament comparison between a dove and the Spirit of God that descended on Jesus during his baptism. [Mt 3:16]
In the Biblical Old Testament story of Noah and the Flood, a dove returns to Noah with a freshly plucked olive leaf [Gen 8:11]. By the fifth century, St Augustine of Hippo confirmed the Christian reading of the olive branch association with Noah, writing that, "perpetual peace is indicated by the olive branch that the dove brought with it when it returned to the ark."
