Legend about four-leaf clover

November 22, 2016

For some, the tradition goes back to the origins of creation. According to Christian legend, Eve carried a four-leaf clover with her when she left the Garden of Eden.

Later, St.Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland, used a Shamrock to explain the Christian Holy Trinity. The three leaves of the shamrock/clover represented Father, Son and Holy Spirit. According to legend, when the fourth leaf is found it represents God`s grace.

The mistiques of four-leaf clover persists also today. Finding a four leaf-clover it`s a sign of good luck and this symbol is the same throughout the world.
