It is known that every closed orientable 3-manifold can be represented by coloured knots, edge-coloured graphs or transitive permutation pairs. The present paper describes some relations between these representation theories: in particular, it is shown how to obtain a transitive permutation pair representing a 3-manifold M, starting from a coloured knot representing M.
