THE MANCH­ESTER BEE

Business Traveller (India) - - FIND YOUR GREAT BRITAIN -

The worker bee is the most loved sym­bol of Manch­ester, and you will en­counter it al­most ev­ery­where — tat­toos, lapel pins, T-shirts, art­works in restau­rants or even used in the decor at ho­tels. Manch­ester’s his­tory is closely linked to the In­dus­trial Rev­o­lu­tion, where the lo­cals con­sid­ered them­selves as hard­work­ing as worker bees, and they adopted this mo­tif as a lo­cal sym­bol of sorts. To­day, the Manch­ester Bee sym­bol is even more vis­i­ble across the city as a sign of sol­i­dar­ity among lo­cals.
