|Motto||Freedom and unity
It was adopted with the state seal, which was designed by Ira Allen, in 1779. The motto may have been adopted due to the desire that Vermonters should be free and united, or more likely, due to the desire that individual states should be free, but united. It has been suggested that this motto may have been the verbal source for the Liberty and Union speech of Daniel Webster. 'Live Free or Die' is the New Hampshire state motto. 'Quarta Decima Stella' is a Latin phrase meaning 'the 14th star'. It was stamped on Vermont coins in the late 18th century to demonstrate the Republic's desire to enter the United States.
