Our Coat of Arms

Honi Soit Qui Mal Y Pense

 "Honi soit qui mal y pense" are French words that you'll find on Britain's royal coat of arms, on the cover of British pass- ports, in British courtrooms and elsewhere of note. 

The Meaning

Honi soit qui mal y pense is a French maxim used as the motto of the British chivalric Order of the Garter. It is translated as "May he be shamed who thinks badly of it" or "Shame be to him who thinks evil of it"

The Origin

These words were apparently first uttered by England's King Edward III in the 14th century. At that time, he reigned over a part of France, and the language spoken at the English court, among the aristocracy and clergy, and in courts of law was Norman French, as it had been since the time of William the Conqueror of Normandy, starting in 1066.
