En Unión Y Libertad
En unión y libertad
En unión y libertad
(Spanish for "in unity and freedom") is Argentina's national motto.[1][2] It appeared for the first time on the earliest Argentine gold and silver coins, as established by the 1813 General Assembly[3] during the War of Independence of the United Provinces of the Río de la Plata from the Spanish Empire. The motto is considered to be a reference to the ideals of French Revolution.[4] It can be seen in all peso coins and banknotes currently in circulation. References[edit]^ Pezzano, Luciano.

Father Of The Nation
The Father of the Nation is an honorific title given to a man considered the driving force behind the establishment of his country, state, or nation. Pater Patriae
Pater Patriae
(plural Patres Patriae), also seen as Parens Patriae, was a Roman honorific meaning the "Father of the Fatherland", bestowed by the Senate on heroes, and later on emperors. In monarchies, the monarch was often considered the "father/mother of the nation" or as a patriarch to guide his family. This concept is expressed in the Divine Right espoused in some monarchies, while in others it is codified into constitutional law as in Spain, where the monarch is considered the personification and embodiment, the symbol of the unity and permanence of the nation. In Thailand, the monarch is given the same recognition, and demonstrated loyalty is enforced with severe criminal statutes. Many dictators bestow titles upon themselves, which rarely survive the end of their regime
