Four-leaf clovers have been considered symbols of good luck for so long, and by so many different cultures, that it's difficult to say exactly where it started. Druids, Celts and Christians have all held the four-leaf clover in high esteem at one point or another.
Legend has it that each leaf of a clover represents something different:
  • Leaf One: luck
  • Leaf Two: faith
  • Leaf Three: love
  • Leaf Four: luck

Old Irish tradition states that the shamrock, or regular three-leaf clover, represents the Holy Trinity: One for the Father, one for the Son and one for the Holy Spirit. If a shamrock is found with a fourth leaf, this is supposed to represent God's Grace.

The fact that four-leaf clovers are widely thought to bring luck may have something to do with the how unlikely you are to find one. With an estimated 10,000 three-leaf clovers for every one with four leaves, they're pretty rare!

Another legend says that Eve brought a four-leaf clover with her when she was banished from the Garden of Eden.

A four-leaf clover is extremely rare, rarity means exclusiveness and in turn you would be considered lucky to have in your possession something exclusive. However, the four-leaf clover has been considered a lucky charm, right back since biblical times. It is reported that when Eve was banished from the Garden of Eve she took with her one little clover to remind her of the happy times she spent there. This clover she took had four leaves and not the customary three. It is said that if you discover a four-leaf clover then you may be about to enter paradise and if a woman eats a four-leaf clover she is sure to find the man of her dreams. A famous rhyme says it like this:
One Leaf is for Hope and One is for Faith
And One is for Love, this you know.
And One was put in just for Luck
You must try to find out where they grow.
But you must have Hope and you must have Faith
And you must Love and Be Strong, it's so.
If you seek with heart, you will find the place
Where the four-leaved Clovers Grow.

The four leaves represent something, the first for fame, the second for wealth, the third for love and the forth for health.
