The four-leaf clover has been a symbol of luck and prosperity since ancient times. Different peoples have different superstitions and beliefs associated with this rare plant. In the Irish tradition, for example, the three-leaf clover is a symbol of the Holy Trinity. With the help of the clover, St. Patrick was able to explain to people who did not believe the idea that God was a trinity. He told people that just as three leaves come out of one place, so God has three faces – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The clover was turned into an emblem of Irish culture, and also a traditional symbol for March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day), which is still celebrated in Ireland and many other countries.
There are legends that Celtic priests and druids used three-leaf clover as a talisman, believing that the clover protected them from evil spirits.
After the first four-leaf clover was discovered, it was believed that its leaves were a symbol of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and the fourth leaf symbolized God’s mercy to people.
There is also a belief that the four-leaf clover is a piece of the Garden of Eden. When Adam and Eve were expelled from God, Eve took a four-leaf clover with her to remember the days in Heaven on earth. Therefore, if there is a four-leaf clover in your garden or home, then you have a piece of Paradise and God’s blessing is with you.
One of the most popular beliefs about four-leaf clovers is that each leaf has a certain meaning for its owner. The first leaf is a symbol of faith, the second – hope, the third – love, and the fourth leaf is luck. That is why everyone who has found a four-leaf clover is considered lucky.
There is also a belief in the folk tradition that if an unmarried woman finds a four-leaf clover and eats it, the first man she meets will become her husband.
Caution: Consumption of this type of clover is not recommended.
Another medieval belief is that whoever discovers the rare find, in addition to happiness, the clover will bring him extraordinary strength – he will be able to see forest spirits and fairies.
