The role of the pigeon in man's life

.
The role of the pigeon in man's life is closely related, starting from his deification, and comes to his role as a postman, a pet, a food for people, and even a hero of war. For the first time the pigeon is mentioned in the Old Testament, in the story of Noah. After the flood Noah sent a crow and a dove to see what was on the ground. The dove returns with an olive branch in the beak so Noah understands that the ground has already begun to dry and the flood has passed. From there, the dove is also a symbol of peace.
Later, already in the New Testament, the dove is mentioned at the baptism of Jesus Christ, where the bird descends upon him as the Holy Spirit.
During the First and Second World Wars, the dove saved thousands of people by transmitting messages through enemy lines. The largest pigeon-based communications network was established in Syria and Persia around the 5th century BC.
During the Roman era pigeons were used to convey the results of sporting events during the Olympic Games.
The French and British governments honor the pigeon for their ability to transmit information during military action.
Unbelievable, but the fact - the last station of pigeons was closed in India in 2004.
