The sculpture of a beehive in front of the State Capitol building in Salt Lake City, Utah.
"The beehive is considered to be synonymous with industry and perseverance, since bees are famously hard workers, toiling almost endlessly for the well being of the hive and the bees living within it.
Utah is referred to as the Beehive State. The early settlers in Utah, primarily members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, also known as the Mormon Church, saw the beehive as the perfect symbol to indicate their industriousness and hard work. That is why the state motto is 'Industry'"
Isn't it funny that once we knew this, we suddenly noticed images of beehives all the time. On road signs, for instance..
