Louisiana State Motto
"Union, Justice, Confidence"
Adopted on April 30, 1902
Focus: Justice and Union vs. State
The description of the seal included the motto, Union, Justice, Confidence. This seal was adopted on April 30, 1902.
It's not known how the motto was determined, but Governor Heard considered these three words to be most important aspects of statehood. The meaning behind the motto may be recognized in the official State Pledge of Allegiance, adopted in 1981 and recorded in the Louisiana Revised Statutes.
