The belief in lucky charms and lucky symbols is still present today, and the four-leaf clover is one of the most sought-after. Even if four-leaf clovers are rare in nature, there is no good reason why.
They were supposed to bring good luck. The Celts were already searching for them with high intensity. To find one was relatively unlikely, or at least extremely difficult. Nevertheless, the four-leaf clover has lost hardly any of its symbolic value to this day.

To be able to fulfill its task as a lucky charm, it is crucial that you find it yourself and that the find was accidental. It must not be a cultivated plant, such as the ‘lucky clover’ offered in shops, which is not a real clover.
The lucky four-leaf clover is not a special kind of clover, but a mutation, of which there is only one in a thousand. If one is discovered, it is best to keep it or give it to a loved one as a sign of affection and a messenger of good luck.
Each leaf of a cloverleaf has its meaning. The four-leaf clover is a symbol of the world and, on the one hand, is supposed to connect the four cardinal points with the four elements fire, water, air, and earth.
On the other hand, the first leaf stands for fame, the second for wealth, the third for a faithful lover, and the fourth for best health. The origins of the cloverleaf as a lucky charm go back more than 2,200 years.
Once, this rarity was reserved only for the so-called Druids (spiritual and cultic elite in Celtic and mythological times). In Celtic times, many plants were attributed to magical powers, notably the four-leaf clover.
The Celts believed that nothing wrong could happen to them if they owned one of these clovers. A four-leaf clover was supposed to give them magical powers, protect them from evil spirits, and ward off evil spells from them. In the Middle Ages, for example, it was sewn into the clothing of travelers to protect them from harm on their journey.
