Some species, as the bis-red, lives in the South America. But the most known she is the bis-sacred one (aethiopica Threskiornis), of white plumage, except head, neck and part of the wings, black color. Because it appeared in floods of the Nile and killed the serpents, the bis-sacred one was venerated in old Egypt with the name of Thot, the Egyptian god of the moon, inventor of the writing, protector of the wisdom, represented with a human body with head of bis. In heraldry, this bird symbolizes the paternal love, the gratitude and the salubrity. Ok, but why loads d' water had been to choose this bird as name and mascote of the famous pernambucano teams? The reply it is in the book of Loyal Israel.
He is that, in 15.11.1938, the teams was established by employees of the Weaving of Silk and Cotton of Pernambuco (TSAP). They liveed in the call Village Weaving, the quarter of Saint Amaro, Recife, and had received the support from the owner of the plant, that agreed to paying to the new club a monthly mount of money. In exchange, the club adopted logotipo of the plant, that also was reproduced on the doors of the houses of the Village Weaving: bis black.
