Why the bee?

In 2014 we decided to revamp our logo, which had served us well for eight years but was looking a little dated. We wanted to give it a cleaner, more modern look whilst retaining the shield design, the United red and City sky blue colours, and the stripes representing the Rochdale Canal that runs alongside our famous Canal Street (and some say the four rivers of Manchester - Irwell, Medlock, Irk and Tib).

 

We decided to add the Manchester bee. The bee has been the symbol of Manchester for well over 100 years, and is used to recognise the city's history as the world's first industrialised city - the bee being an industrious creature!

 

Walk around Manchester and you will see the bee on bollards, planters and bins along with mosaics at our amazing town hall. It's also used on the crests of the City of Manchester, the University of Manchester and HMS Manchester, along with logos for various companies based here. 

 

In 2019 we went for an even more radical design, moving away from the traditional shield and putting our own interpretation of the bee centre stage. 

 

We think it's buzzin, man!
