Michigan State Motto
"Si quaeris peninsulam amoenam, circumspice"
(If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you.)
Adopted in 1835.
The State motto of Michigan, "Si Quaeris Peninsulam Amoenam Circumspice", meaning: If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look around you, is said to have been suggested by the mural inscription on the north door of St. Paul's Cathedral in London, which reads, Si Monumentum Requiris Circumspice. Adopted in 1835.
This statement holds many truths. Michigan is a land of great splendors. Full of natural beauty, historical importance and citizens full of hope and energy as we enter into a new millennium. Michigan is also a place of economic opportunities, with Michigan gaining recognition as being the state with the most new plants or expansion projects for the third year in a row. So, relocating or starting a business in Michigan is a smart choice.
