    Yes, Escherichia coli, commonly known as E. coli, does have flagella. Flagella are whip-like structures that protrude from the surface of bacterial cells and enable them to move. In E. coli, these flagella are used for motility, allowing the bacteria to swim through liquid environments. The presence of flagella helps E. coli to navigate towards nutrients and away from harmful substances, contributing to its survival and ability to colonize different environments.
