Grenades are very symbolic fruits in the Orient world; they represent the sun and life. For the Jewish people they mean something else, for its 613 seeds match the 613 precepts of the Torah. That is why King Salomon used grenades as a decorative motif in the holy Temple of Jerusalem (built in the IX th century A.D.)
The actual city of Granada took its name from an ancient Jewish suburb of the ancient city lf Ilíveris (or Elvira), which was destroyed before the Muslim invasion of the Iberian Península in 711 A.D.
