The oak is one of earth's most sacred trees, respected worldwide as a symbol of earthly strength, wisdom, and endurance. It is the sacred to the kingly gods of thunder, such as Zeus (Greek), Perun (Slavic), and Thor (Norse). Perhaps this is because of the mighty size of these trees, their muscular lighting-bold shaped branches, and the fact that they are more likely to be struck by lightning, and will often survive the blast. It was especially sacred to the Druids and pagan Celts. It is theorized that the word 'Druid' is derived from the ancient word for oak ("worshipers of the oak").
The oak is so admired and beloved that it was voted the National Tree of America, and it features on coins, flags, and heraldry worldwide. Shelter beneath the shade of this magnificent oak bough. Its entwined branches and layered leaves offer the security, wisdom, and wild benevolence of the mighty tree.
