In Ukrainian tradition arrowwood symbolizes unusual strength and immortal beauty. Initially arrowwood was associated with
the beginnings of the Universe and the flaming trinity: Sun, Moon and Star. The Ukrainian name of arrowwood comes from
the old Ukrainian name of Sun.
Red berries of arrowwood symbolize blood and immortal clan, flame and sun. This is why arrowwood is always embroidered
on wedding clothes.
Arrowwood is a symbol of woman’s spiritual life: her girlhood, love and beauty, married life, trials and happiness.
