Elephant symbolism also represents sensitivity, stability, intelligence, peace, reliability and determination, which are all seen in the animal's nature when observed in the wild.
Elephants are gentle giants, who show great care toward their herd, offspring and elders. This symbolizes responsibility, determination and loyalty.

Patience:
Elephants are also a symbol for keeping calm and having patience as elephants are generally calm and mellow creatures, unless their young or herd is threatened.
