the great seal

"Novus Ordo Seclorum" is the phrase that comes under the pyramid on the American seal. The best explanation I've seen of what that means comes from an Armistice Day Address by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Just exactly what is a "New order for the ages?"

Above the pyramid comes another phrase: "Annuit Coeptus" which translates to Providence Has Favored Our Undertakings.
