The bee icon first came into prominence as far back as the 18th century when Manchester became a leader in the Industrial Revolution and since then it has it has been featured across many of Manchester’s features, landmarks, buildings and household brand names.
Bees are featured in Manchester’s coat of arms, HMS Manchester, a Royal Navy destroyer was nicknamed the Busy Bee and the bee emblem was depicted on the ship’s crest. Manchester’s iconic town hall has a mosaic of a worker bee on its entrance steps and Manchester University features bees on its crest. Boddington’s nationally renowned logo features two bees on the front of a barrel of the famous beer.
Since the terror attack at the Arena which claimed 22 lives, the symbol has taken on a renewed life with Mancunians of all ages using it to depict the City’s hope, unity and defiance in the face of adversity.
Today the bee icon is to be seen on buildings and murals across the City as a constant reminder to the world of Manchester’s indomitable spirit.
