The motto of Paris - WWI - Propaganda - Patriotism

Flutuat nec mergitur'. This phrase is the motto of Paris, France, and is translated as "Il est agite °ar les vagues, et ne sombre pas" or in English "She is tossed by the waves but does not sink". This motto is present in the city coat of arms depicting a ship floating on a rough sea. Both motto and city arms have their origins in the river Seine boatsman's corporation; this powerful hanse ruled the city's trade and commerce as early as the Roman era. It is used on this WWI-era postcard to denote the French resolve in the face of German hostility and also the efforts (ultimately successful at great cost) to prevent German advance to Paris. Date: 1914
