I believe that the main symbol for Good, is the creation that was carried on by God. According to the Genesis book all the elements on the planet and space, including all the living species, were created by God, therefore our world is considered a good place according to the fragment. This was continuously reassured on the passage because at the end of each day of labor, God sees that all he has done is good. We can also infer that the fact of working hard everyday is a good thing.

When it comes to the Evil symbols, things are very clear and we can see how most of the bad things happen after Eve ate the fruit from the tree of Good and Evil. Among the evil symbols we can see that being naked is seeing as an evil sign. Also after being expelled from Eden, tragedy shadowed Adam and Eve's descendents, in that case we can name other signs of evil, like murder and envy in the case of Cain and Abel.

The fall of human kind happened because the serpent deceived Eve to eat from the forbidden tree. All the supposedly good things that would happen from eating the fruit tempted Eve and the first sin was committed.

Regarding the serpent, I don't believe it actually lied because after Eve ate the fruit from the tree, things happened just like the serpent said. However that doesn't take away the fact that it deceived Eve and that she couldn't resist the fact of gaining the knowledge of Good and Bad.
