is the largest city in Scotland, and the fourth largest in the United Kingdom.
Glasgow grew from a small rural settlement on the River Clyde to become one of the largest seaports in Britain. Expanding from the medieval bishopric and royal burgh, and the later establishment of the University of Glasgow in the 15th century, it became a major centre of the Scottish Enlightenment in the 18th century.
The coat of arms of the City of Glasgow was granted to the royal burgh by the Lord Lyon on 25 October 1866. It incorporates a number of symbols and emblems associated with the life of Glasgow's patron saint, Mungo, which had been used on official seals prior to that date.
Here is the bird that never flew
Це птиця, що ні разу не літала
Here is the tree that never grew
Це дерево, що не росло
Here is the bell that never rang
Це колокольчик, що ніразу не дзвонив
Here is the fish that never swam
Це риба, що ніразу не плавала.
The emblems represent miracles supposed to have been performed by Mungo and are listed in the traditional rhyme:
