Palmové ratolesti byly užívány Římany jako symbol vítězství a tato symbolika byla přijata i křesťany. Mučedníci jsou někdy zobrazováni s palmovou ratolestí na znamení vítězství nad smrtí.

Palm branches were used by the Romans as a symbol of victory, and were adopted by the Christians as a similar symbol. Martyrs are sometimes portrayed holding palm branches as a sign of their victory over death.
