17 February 1964, Norway
Centenary of Oslo Workers’ Society
design: O. Ranheimsaeter

This beehive and Oak leaves are the emblem of Oslo Workers’ Society. The bee has been regarded as a symbol of union and humble hard workers for centuries. This type of straw beehive has been used for a long time in human history – hanging from a tree, or placed on a table as depicted here.

And in this tiny picture, bees DO have four wings.
