The most comprehensive map of its kind, the Manchester Bees map demonstrates the spread of Bee iconography across Manchester City Centre and beyond. Divided into five categories, each identified by colour-coded bees:

Yellow Bee Icon
Exterior Bees
The locations of bees that adorn the exterior of buildings.

Blue Bee Icon
Disappeared Bees
The location of bees that can no longer be found in-situ, due to their temporary nature or the passage of time.

Purple Bee Icon
Interior Bees
The locations of bees that can only be found inside buildings, which may be inaccessible.

Green Bee Icon
Manchester Beehives
The location of city centre beehives, some of which form part of Manchester's River of Flowers.
