Symbolism of the Geese

They are monogamous, and most couples stay together all of their lives. Canada geese are especially protective animals, and will sometimes attack any animal nearing their territory or offspring, including humans. Although parents are hostile to unfamiliar geese, they may form groups of a number of goslings and a few adults, called crèches. The crèche (from French) in zoology refers to care of another's offspring, for instance in a colony, usually those of birds.

Geese symbolize the importance of respectful communication, and respectful team work between community members. When Geese fly in formation they take turns with breaking the wind, no one goose harbours this responsibility alone, they work as a coordinated team.
