The Manchester worker bee is one of the best-known symbols of Manchester and has been an emblem for the city for over 150 years. The bee denotes Mancunians’ hard work ethic and the city being a hive of activity. In the wake of the attack on the 22 May at Manchester Arena, it has come to represent the amazing sense of unity and solidarity shown in our great city.
We hold the trademark for various iterations of the bee.
