Palm branches are a symbol of victory and triumph. They were used on Jesus' processional into Jerusalem because the people recognized him as Messiah. It was also customary for Kings and Noblemen to ride in on a donkey, as the donkey symbolizes peace, therefore those who rode one showed they came with peaceful intentions.
