Coat of Arms on Wolverhampton Central Library
Coat of Arms on Wolverhampton Central Library
Wolverhampton Central Library is a Grade II* listed building, opened in 1902 and designed by Henry T Hare in 1898. The Royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom is beautifully presented with the motto of the English Order of the Royal Garter.

Honi soit qui mal y pense can be (loosely) translated as "Evil be to him who evil thinks". Dieu et mon droit is the motto of the British Monarch in England, meaning (literally) "God and my right". It is hardly surprising that our royal family has a motto written in French, seeing as we were invaded by them in 1066!
