Nevada State Motto

Nevada Motto

All for our Country


In 1866, Nevada Legislature officially changed the motto on the seal to “All for Our Country” which is still the official motto of Nevada.

“All for Our Country” replaced the earlier territorial motto of “Volens et Potens,” which is Latin for “Willing and Able” expressing the ideas of loyalty to the Union and the mineral wealth to sustain it. This motto was used from 1861 until it was replaced in 1866.
