The spirit of the ivy is represented by the gort ogham.
Associated with determination and protection, the spirit of gort represents the ability to persevere regardless of the opposition with a steadfast tenacity. Gort also represents spiritual and emotional connections and the ability to hold to true friendship beyond any that would seek to surmount it. The ivy captures the spirit of gort’s ability to traverse in nearly any condition and cover ground and grows in a spiraling pattern upon trunks of host trees as a sign of the pulsing life force of the earth itself.
