Glasgow: Bird, Tree, Bell and Fish

"Here is the bird that never flew
Here is the tree that never grew
Here is the bell that never rang
Here is the fish that never swam"

These verses summarise the four miracles performed by St Mungo, the patron saint of Glasgow. The bird, tree, bell and fish are not only featured in the coat of arms but also cleverly depicted in various guises throughout the city!
