Laurel Wreath

In ancient Greece, victorious athletes during the Olympics, which are held to this day, were crowned with a wreath made of laurel leaves. The Laurel Tree has associations with the Sun God, Apollo, and the tree is known as well for it's medicinal virtues. While athletes are no longer given laurel wreathes, the laurel crown is identified with achieving victory, success, and excellence.
