The circle is an ancient symbol for eternity.

A circle has no beginning — and no end. Wreaths and wedding rings express this symbol.

Pliny wrote a book, “Natural History” in ancient times. From that, we learn the many market gardens of Athens supplied the city with flowers, vegetables and wreaths.

The flowers were raised mainly for garland and wreath makers. They formed a distinct trade.

Wreaths were an important part of every festive occasion in ancient times. They were used to adorn statues and altars.
