South African Motto
The present coat of arms of South Africa was introduced on Freedom Day 27 April 2000. It replaced the earlier national arms , which had been in use since 1910.  The motto ǃke e꞉ ǀxarra ǁke is written in the Khoisan language of the ǀXam people and translates literally to "diverse people unite". The previous motto, in Latin, was Ex Unitate Vires , translated as "From unity, strength".
