Arkansas State Motto
(The People Rule)
Adopted in 1907.
"Regnat populus" has been translated as: "The People Rule." A 1907 act changed the motto to its current language from "Regnant Populi," the motto selected in 1864. The exact origin of this motto is somewhat obscure.
In the lower half of the circle of the Seal is an eagle holding in its beak a scroll, inscribed "Regnat Populus" (The People Rule), a bundle of arrows in one claw and an olive branch in the other.
There are three states with mottos that focus on the people:
Arkansas Code (Non annotated), Title 1, Chapter 4, Section 1-4-107.
The updated Latin is illustrated below in this current description of the Arkansas State Seal provided in the Arkansas Code.
