A flagellum is a "whiplike" tail that serves to propel a cell forward. A fish would use its tail to help it move forward. Also, a powerboat is propelled by a rotor, which operates much like a flagellum (although it may be important to note that flagella are often longer than the cell; whereas boat motors are relatively small).

You'll have to come up with your own analogies. Writing a bunch of random analogies down on the internet isn't going to help your story at all. You have to have analogies that actually have something to do with your own characters, setting, and plot.

These bacteria that have flagella have to be handled more carefully than bacteria without flagella because the flagella could brake off the bacteria. Remember that some bacterial flagella are very small and delicate.

Flagella is a part of the cell which allows the cell to move. Bacteria which have flagella are not always pathogenic. Some, like Heliobacter pylori have a flagella and cause stomach ulcers in some patients. Thus, a flagella is not an indication of pathogenicity.
