Asian and Mediterranean cultures have long considered bees to be sacred insects. Bees created nutritious and medicinal honey, became icons of cooperation and industry, and were mythological messengers between everyday life and the otherworld. Famed as emblems of heraldry, kingship, religious devotion, unswerving effort, immortality, and resurrection, honeybees and their larger cousins bumblebees are popular symbols to this day.
