On the sign:
סמל מזכרת בתיה - מושבה קסומה בלב הארץ

פעמון המושבה
הוקם בשנותיה הראשונות של המושבה ושימש להשכמה לחליבה, לאזעקה בזמן שריפה והתנכלויות בשדה, מתן עזרה למושבות סמוכות, לציון כניסת השבת ואירועים נוספים.
בזמן מלחמת השחרור שימש צלצול הפעמון כאות אזעקה לירידה למקלטים.

Translation of the text on the sign:
The emblem of Mazkeret Batya - a magical colony in the heart of the country

Colony bell
Established in the early years of the colony and served as a wake-up call for milking, alarms during fires and harassment in the field, providing assistance to nearby colonies, marking the Sabbath and other events.
During the War of Independence, the bell rang as an alarm signal to go to the shelters.
