THE PALM: THE PALM DEPICTED IS, OF COURSE, THE DATE PALM. THE TREE WAS A SYMBOL OF JUDEA WHERE PALM TREES GROW IN GREATER NUMBERS THAN THE SURROUNDING AREAS (THE ROMANS ALSO USED IT AS A SYMBOL OF JUDEA ON JUDAEA CAPTA COINS). THE PALM ALSO SYMBOLIZED ABUNDANCE AND PLENTY, DIGNITY, ROYAL HONOR, JUBILATION AND VICTORY, AND WAS USED IN RELIGIOUS PROCESSIONS.
