Britain.tv Wikipedia - Motto (164 words)
A motto (from Italian) is a phrase or a short list of words meant formally to describe the general motivation or intention of an entity, social group, or organization.
Mottos are traditionally written in Latin or Romance languages, as well as in English or German.
In heraldry, a motto is often depicted in an achievement of arms, typically on a scroll below the shield, or else above the crest as in Scots heraldry.
