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."
