Regnat populus

Regnat populus

"Regnat populus" (Latin "The people rule") is a state motto of Arkansas.

History of the motto

Like many other state mottos, Arkansas' motto was first adopted as an element of an official seal. An Act of the Arkansas General Assembly, approved in 1864, specified the first version in plural "Regnant populi" in its description of the seal. On May 23, 1907, it passed legislation changing the motto. It is not known when or how the motto came to be incorporated into the state seal.
