Question: Which country’s national motto is “One for all, all for one”?

France
Germany
Switzerland
Belgium

If you’ve ever joined the Three Musketeers in their famous declaration, “One for all, all for one,” then you’ve also joined all of Switzerland in their national motto. Expressed in Latin as “Unus pro omnibus, omnes pro uno,” the phrase originated as a national slogan during 1868 when floods overwhelmed the Swiss Alps. Encouraging the nation to come together in providing aid and engaging in recovery efforts, the phrase became a motto of unity. French novelist, Alexandre Dumas, arguably made the phrase famous in his book, “The Three Musketeers” in 1844, but its origins perhaps go back even further. The phrase has even been used by William Shakespeare in a 16th-century poem.

Answer: The correct answer is Switzerland.
