A deseret is a "honeybee" in the language of the Book of Mormon. It has been variously used as the name for a university (now the University of Utah) and a state (Deseret was a proposed name for Utah), and various businesses use it as part of their name in and around Utah. The state symbol of Utah is a beehive.
