The worker bee has been an emblem of Manchester for over 150 years. The bee was adopted as a motif for Manchester during the industrial revolution, and seven bees are included in the crest of the city’s arms, which were granted to the Borough of Manchester in 1842. At the time it represented the hard work of Mancunians and the textile mills that were commonly described as hives of activity – something Fat Beehive is also named after.
