In the year 2000, Fattal adopted a new land-bound emblem symbolizing its new vision for the millennium: the olive tree.
With its roots well anchored in the Mediterranean soil and documented in the three Holy Books, the olive tree is fruit bearing and a symbol of longevity and hope. It is reputed for being everlasting and a symbol of peace, forgiveness and reconciliation.
Its dense and heavy wood is known for its strength and resistance.
Ultimately, the olive tree incarnates both Fattal’s Middle-Eastern roots and the company’s ambition: expanding into the Levant and North Africa.
