Monton Mural
The worker bee is one of the best-known symbols of Manchester, (the bee first appeared on the Salford coat of arms. Many crests and local coat of arms still have the bee) . It was adopted as a motif for Manchester during the Industrial Revolution, at a time when Manchester was taking a leading role in new forms of mass production, and symbolises Mancunians' hard work during this era and Manchester being a hive of activity in the 19th century.

Following the May 2017 Manchester Arena bombing, the bee emblem gained popularity as a public symbol of unity, appearing on protest banners and graffiti.
