Utah has been known as the beehive state ever since I was born. When I was growing up, the neighbors had beehives but the hives were kept in white boxes, not rounded and not woven. This is the first and only beehive I have seen in the design used by Utah almost everywhere. Here is a stained glass window with the same design. Sometimes we have to look to history to understand the present. In fact, without history, we can never understand the present.
