Vine & Branches
The vine and branches are a reminder of Jesus' teaching that believers derive life and fruitfulness from Christ, the True Vine.

John 15:5 "I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. (NIV)

The violet is a symbol of humility. Is it most often used in reference to the Virgin Mary, or to Christ's assuming human form.
