    When you see the dove peace symbol together with the olive branch, it is an obvious piece of symbolism that describes a noble goal. The peace symbol that is used is largely chosen for very specific reasons.

    The white dove peace symbol is consistent through Christianity, Judaism, and Islam as a peace symbol.

    The reason for its use as a symbol of peace is the story of Noah and the release of the white dove to find land after the Great Flood. When the dove returned with an olive branch, which is another peace symbol, it was clear that the world was ready to welcome back man. The dove peace symbol is one that is clearly recognized all over the world.

    while WW2 ended, Picasso became asked to create a picture for the Peace convention and he chosen the Dove of Peace. This became an on the spot hit and he persevered to portray doves for some years.
