The use of dove symbols in logo designs has a rich and diverse background that spans cultures and time. The dove is a universally recognized symbol that has been associated with various meanings, including peace, purity, love, hope, and spirituality.
The origins of the dove symbol can be traced back to ancient civilizations. In ancient Greece and Rome, the dove was associated with the goddess of love, Aphrodite/Venus. It was seen as a symbol of love, beauty, and fertility.

Or, you can make your white dove look different by adding an olive branch next to the dove, not on its beak. You can also add some other objects like a hand and a star. White will be the best color for those objects on your logo. Pick a darker color for the background, like charcoal gray.
