  • Friends & enemies of the bee.

Utah Is Known as the Bee Hive State. It is not because we have more honeybee colonies than any other state. Early Utah settlers under the leadership of Brigham Young toiled long hours as they turned the high desert into pastures, farms, towns and cities. It was out of necessity that first year to be sure, but the work ethic continued even in times of plenty. So it was Territorial Governor Young who adopted the straw skep emblem for the provisional State of Deseret in 1848 and was maintained on the seal of the State of Utah when Utah became a state in 1896. The beehive became the official state emblem on March 4, 1959. Utahns relate the beehive symbol to industry and the pioneer virtues of thrift and perseverance.
