The Ivy (Gort to the Celts) is a hardy vine. It withstands harsh conditions and will often regrow when cut back severely. It was a sign of friendship to the Celts. Its interwoven pattern likened to the many twists/turns of friendship, the need to rely on one another, to trust one another, and to appreciate differences. The five pointed leaves were seen by some as representative of the 4 seasons and the harmony between them.

The Ogham symbol for "G" (Gort or Ivy in English) appears at the left. In addition to representing "G" in writing, it carries with it the notion of friendship and so forth described briefly above.
