The Clover
The Clover belongs to the plant family called Legumes (Fabaceae). It’s botanical generic name Trifolium is derived from the three leaves, which a clover normally has. As a freak of nature the number of its leaves can vary in rare cases. Clovers with one, six and even seven leaves have already been found. The most well known s definitely the four leaf clover.

Already during the time of the Celts this clover was considered as a protection symbol. It is known as the four cardinal points and the four elements, water, fire, air and earth. In Christianity it symbolizes the cross. The rare appearance and the difficulty in finding the four leaf clover make this plant a lucky symbol in many civilisations to this date.

According to prevalent faith it also banishes evil, protects one from misfortune and brings good luck while gambling. A four leaf clover in a schoolbook should also help one reach higher grades and one under a pillow brings sweet dreams. According to a survey in 2005, an astonishing 40 percent of Germans believe in the virtue of the good luck clover. And if it does not work no harm is done! The least when it is inlaid in a classic silver coin with permanent value. Is there a more beautiful gift than luck?

Green and usually three-leafed, the clover that famously gives the Irish landscape its deep emerald colour is known the world over as the shamrock, and it is easily the most recognizable emblem of Ireland and its people! It is said that Saint Patrick, the fifth-century saint whose death is commemorated each year on March 17, famously used the clover's three leaves to illustrate the Christian principle of the Holy Trinity. But many are likely to associate this little green plant with the legendary four-leaf variety, which is a centuries-old symbol for luck that is widely considered to be an omen of good things to come. So if you happen upon a four-leaf clover, don’t cast it aside—you never know what luck it may bring!
