In God We Trust
"In God We Trust" is the official motto of the US. It is found on all American currency, a few state flags, several stamps, and monuments in state capitals. Also the official motto for the state of Florida. The origin of this phrase may be Psalm 56:4 - "In God I have put my trust."
For nearly 150 years many United States dollar coins included this motto on one flat side of the coin , but in 2007 the new George Washington dollar coin includes this motto only in small print on the edge of the coin.

most powerful resource in peace and war."
