Concordiae Symbolum.

A symbol of concord.

Cornicum mira inter se concordia vitae est,
Inque vicem nunquàm contaminata fides.[1]
Hinc volucres haec sceptra gerunt, quod scilicet omnes
Consensu populi stantque, caduntque duces:
Quem si de medio tollas, discordia praeceps.
Advolat, & secum regia fata trahit.

Marvellous is the unanimity between crows as they live together, and their loyalty to each other, never dishonoured. For this reason these birds hold the sceptre. - Assuredly all leaders stand and fall by the consent of the people. If you take away consent, tumultuous discord comes flying in and drags kings down in its wake.

Notes:

1.  See Aelian, De natura animalium 3.9. on the mutual love and loyalty of crows.

CONCORDE.

Marcque de Concorde.

Corneilles hont merveilleuse concorde,
Leur foy jamais d’ensemble ne discorde.[1]
Sceptres des Roys portent de telz oyseaux,
Car par accord Princes sont bas, ou haulx,
Lequel tollu discordes, & desroys,
Viennent soubdain, tirans la mort des Roys.

C’est ce que Micipsa en Saluste dict, que par concor-
de les petites choses croissent. Et les grandes (com-
me Royaumes & Roys) deschéent par discorde.
