Mississippi Motto
By Valor and Arms
The state motto of Mississippi is "By Valor and Arms" (Virtute et Armis in Latin).

The Mississippi state motto has not been adopted and an official Mississippi motto but has appeared on the Mississippi coat-of-arms since 1894. The Mississippi motto was suggested by James Rhea Preston, the Mississippi superintendent of education.

Interestingly, the Mississippi motto may have its roots and inspiration from another motto with a subtle, but somewhat different message. This motto created by Lord Gray De Wilton: "Virtute Non Armis Fido" (I trust in virtue not arms).
