Fly!

So why do witches fly on broomsticks? The answer is depends on who you ask. Some say that it is a representation of housework, some say that it is thinly veiled reference to witches “getting high” from their potions. In Wicca, the broom or besom is used to cleanse sacred spaces. The first image apparently of this was in 1280 A.D but I can not find it. The first I can find is from 1440. Below is the link to the website with more information.
