CHICAGO CITY SEAL

Chicago's city seal says, “Urbs in Horto.” It means “City in a Garden.”

It might not say that for long if Mayor Daley has his way. How do the latin words, “Urbs of Liberi” sound?

“I'm passionate about children. We put too many other things above our children. Children, to me, should be what we stand for here in the city of Chicago,” the mayor said.

“We’re the city of flowers. We’re the city of trees and gardens and all that. I’d like to maybe change that motto to, ‘City of Children.’ I really believe that.”

If you could rewrite Chicago’s motto — City in a Garden — what would you make it?

“City of kickbacks?”
“In Ditka, we trust?”
