The Furth Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto.

Motto: Deus incrementum dedit
Motto Translation: God has given increase.
