The tree mark

The tree mark is first seen in "One of Us". It seems to mark the place which Ben refers to as "Ethan's old drop-off point," near the caves. When Ben goes over his plan with Juliet, he indicates that the supplies necessary to treat Claire's condition will be planted at this location. Juliet falsely tells Jack that the medicine at that location had been there since Ethan's time among the survivors.

Meaning

  • The symbol's most widely-accepted meaning is the alchemic symbol for ammonium salt.

  • The symbol is the Delphic Epsilon representing The Epsilon Team (Greek: Ομάδα Έψιλον, Omadha Epsilon).
  • The symbol can also be interpreted as a simplified fleur-de-lis, a symbol commonly associated with the French monarchy and its settlements including Canada.
