The Pineapple has been the symbol of hospitality since the 15th
and 16th centuries. When seamen on whaling ships returned home from
the South Seas, they would place a pineapple at their front gate.
This would signal welcome to all neighbors and friends to celebrate
their successful return. The tradition continues today with the
Pineapple motif often carved in doorways and entryways to welcome
friends and neighbors. It has become the “international
symbol of hospitality”.
