Glasgow 's Coat of Arms has roots going back as far as the 6 th Century, when St Mungo, the city's patron saint, established a monastery on the banks of the Molendinar Burn, a tributary of the River Clyde.
When in 1866 the authorities approved a Coat of Arms, various insignia and emblems, which had previously been used on official seals, were incorporated into the design. All of these items were associated with St Mungo in different ways, and the phrase "Let Glasgow Flourish", was said to come from one of his sermons.The Tree That Never Grew was originally a branch of a hazel tree, which has now been transformed into an oak tree. The story is told of how St Mungo, a favoured disciple of St Serf, was charged with ensuring that the flames of a holy fire in St Serf's Monastery remained lit.
While St Mungo was sleeping, jealous rivals put out the fire; upon wakening, he went to a nearby hazel tree and broke off a branch. He knelt and prayed, causing the branch to burst into flames; he was then able to re-ignite the holy fire
The Bird That Never Flew again features St Serf. A robin that he had tamed was accidentally killed and St Mungo was deemed to be responsible for its death. Quickly stooping and praying over the bird, he restored it to life. « mai multe referate din Engleza
