Description

‘Labor Omnia Vincit’ (work conquers everything) is a historically significant slogan associated with the American and English labour movements. It was also the motto of the Knights of Labour, a group started in the 1860s in America. The Knights of Labor had members in Australia in the late nineteenth century. Geelong (Vic.) Trades Hall adopted the slogan as its motto and inscribed it on their building. A large number of Australian schools have also taken the slogan as their school code. Geelong Trades Hall Council log associates the Eureka flag (a symbol of Australian nationalism) with the Latin Motto of some of the union movement in America and Australia.
