Tossed but not Sunk

Fluctuat Nec Mergitur is a Latin phrase meaning “Tossed but not sunk”. This motto of the City of Paris has been used since at least 1358.

 

 
In the aftermath of the Paris attacks in November 2015, the motto became very popular as it was extensively used in social media as a symbol of Paris’ courage against terrorism.
