The Trophy Of Ancient Times
People in antiquity loved sports just as much as we do today. Participant in sport events can expect trophies if they succeed in what they are there to do... at least that is what happens to winners nowadays. Back in ancient times things stood a little bit different. Actually people were given palm leaves as a price. Palm leaves were considered exotic and therefore valuable. But it was not their value that was important to the sportsmen, it was winning. Because successful gladiators too were given palm leaves... and you better be on the winning side when it comes to gladiatorial battles. Sometimes very famous and popular sportsmen even got palm leaves made of gold as a token of special rank.
Furthermore, palm leaves were used as a fan for high ranking people. The rich usually had a slave follow them everywhere they went fanning them cool air via a palm leave. Thus, this little piece of green also expresses might and wealth for many people even today.
If you should consider giving out prizes for a sport's event or your kid's birthday party then you should maybe consider giving out palm leaves. It will sure make for unique and special price!
