The Liver bird, symbol of Liverpool

The Liver bird is the symbol of Liverpool. Its first known use was from a seal of the then-town in the 1350s. This card shows the Royal Liver Building, which has a bird on each of its 2 towers. An urban legend says that if the birds are taken down, the River Mersey would flood the city. Thanks to Becky.
