The worker bee has been a symbol of Manchester for 150 years and is being placed next to the club’s badge to pay tribute to the victims.

Why is the bee a symbol for Manchester?

The worker bee is an emblem for Manchester, symbolising the city’s hard-working past.

It was a hive of activity during the Industrial Revolution and workers were soon dubbed “busy bees”.

Seven bees are included in the crest of the city’s arms.

The insects are also dotted around Manchester’s streets, decorating the clock face of the Palace Hotel and the flooring at Manchester Town Hall.
