On the sign:

זית אירופי
Olea europaea

תפוצה טבעית: אגן הים התיכון (מלבד לוב ומצרים), ישראל

הזית הוא אחד הפירות הראשונים שבויתו (נשתלו ושופרו על פי בחירתו של האדם). הפרי היה מוצר מרכזי בכלכלתה של ארץ ישראל בזמן העתיק. אחד מ"שבעת המינים". העץ ירוק עד כהה, בעל גזע "ורידי" מחורץ וחביב על אמנים.

[הפאה השנייה של הקוביה]
[The second face of the cube]

Olea europaea

Natural range: Mediterranean basin (except Libya and Egypt), Israel

One of the first fruit species ever domesticated (planted and improved through selection by people). Its oil became a staple of ancient Israel’s economy. One of Israel’s "Seven Species." Deeply evergreen, with a sinewy trunk, favored by artists.

[הפאה השלישית של הקוביה]
[The third face of the cube]
האם יש ברשותך כרגע תמונת ענף עץ זית? לא? אתה בטוח?

[a question]
Are you carrying an olive branch or two at this moment? Are you sure?

[הפאה הרביעית של הקוביה]
[The fourth face of the cube]
[התשובה לשאלה]
בדוק ברשיון הנהיגה הישראלי או בדרכון האמריקאי: ענף עץ הזית טבוע בהם כסמל השלום ומקורו בסיפור המבול.

[The Answer to the question]
Check your Israeli driver’s license or identity card (or American passport). The olive branch as peace symbol comes from the Biblical story of Noah.
