united in diversity[edit]

Non-idiomatic motto/phrase. BRAND name, maybe? But Google books search shows works non-independent of or affiliated with the European Union? TeleComNasSprVen 05:41, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

No this isn't a "brand name for a physical product" so we can drop that angle. It is wrong; it doesn't mean "the motto of the European Union", is is the motto of the European Union. What is means is [[united]] [[in]] [[diversity]]. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:41, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Keeping "mottoes" like this is not a good idea. They are not normally single words, nor are they 'expressions in the language' (as Lmaltier like to call them) or idioms. They're linguistically uninteresting for these reasons. I don't rule out that some mottoes are in fact idioms, but this one isn't, so delete it. Mglovesfun (talk) 16:17, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Failed RFD. Doesn't even have a definition; just states that it's a motto. Equinox 22:34, 17 July 2011 (UTC)
