Well, great. Jobs and growth. That could be the motto of the European Union. States very often choose their mottos based on what they lack. A couple of examples:
Austria-Hungary: Indivisibiliter ac Inseparabiliter
The Austro-Hungarian empire crumbled in 1918 into six or seven smaller states. The process of division went on after 1989. Today, the territory of the former Austria-Hungary is divided among no less than thirteen separate states.
Confederate States of America: Deo Vindice (Latin: Under God, Our Vindicator)
God did not help Confederacy to win the war. Apparently, God dislikes slavery; sycophants and kowtowers, too.
Italian Social Republic: Per l'onore d'Italia (Italian: For honour of Italy)
The Fascist state (aptly named Repubblica Sociale Italiana since Fascism is a leftist movement) nominally valued honour, but in fact it was nothing but a puppet state of National Socialist Germany.
Belgium: Eendracht maakt macht, L'union fait la force and Einigkeit gibt Stärke
Unity makes force in the country, whose two parts (Wallonia and Flanders) have their own networks of diplomatic representations.
Brazil: Ordem e progresso
A country with one of the highest crime rate in the world has put “order” into its national motto.
North Korea: Gangseong Daeguk (Korean: Prosperous and great country)
A country whose people starve boasts about its prosperity
Burkina Faso: Unité, Progrès, Justice (French: Unity, Progress, Justice)
Burundi: Unité, Travail, Progrès (French: Unity, Work, Progress)
Cameroon: Paix - Travail - Patrie (French: Peace, Work, Homeland)
Central African Republic: Unité, Dignité, Travail (French: Unity, Dignity, Work)
Chad: Unité, Travail, Progrès (French: Unity, Work, Progress)
Democratic Republic of the Congo: Justice - Paix - Travail (French: Justice, Peace, Work)
Niger: Fraternité, Travail, Progrès (French: Brotherhood, Work, Progress)
Rwanda: Ubumwe, Umurimo, Gukunda Igihugu (Kinyarwanda: Unity, Work, Patriotism)
Sierra Leone: Unity, Freedom, Justice
Quite a lot of poor African countries revere justice, peace, freedom, work, progress, unity, dignity... simply everything they notoriously lack.
How about the EU? Its official motto is United in diversity.
Perhaps it's not enough ambitious. I'd propose the following:
Unity, diversity, indivisibility, inseparability, honour, order, progress, jobs, growth, freedom, prosperity, brotherhood, peace, and an ever closer European Union.
Should I apply for a grant in Brussels to promote it?
