Stained, Glass Panel, English, Victorian, Coat of Arms, Manchester, Bee, 19
32 rectangular traceried panes, centred by a monochrome armorial panel: Gules, three bendlets enhanced Or; a chief argent, thereon on waves of the sea a ship under sail proper. A terrestrial globe semée of bees volant, all proper, upon a torse. Dexter a heraldic antelope argent, attired sinister a lion gardant or, murally crowned Gules, each charged on the shoulder with a rose, above banner 'Manchester'. Surmounted by a globe with bee motifs.
Significance of the elements of the coat of arms:
The ship at sea in full sail is a reference to the city's trading base, and to the Manchester Ship Canal. The terrestrial globe signifies Manchester's world trade, and the swarm of flying bees are a symbol of industry - Manchester being the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. On the right a golden lion stands crowned with a castle (a reference to the Roman fort at Castlefield from which the city originated). The lion and antelope both wear the Lancashire Rose.
