Political Notebook, Macon: In search of the perfect seal, motto
“Boy, does Macon-Bibb County need a new seal and motto. The consolidated government will need both, with the motto on the seal, and the task force working on the merger is holding a public contest for the seal design. At the meeting where that competition was announced this week, state Rep. Nikki Randall, D-Macon, looked at side-by-side pictures of the current city and county seals and wondered what Macon’s motto means. Bibb County’s seal bears the words “constitution,” “wisdom,” “justice” and “moderation.” Macon’s, however, says “aedes mores legesque custodiat” across the top, with “corpus politicum” in larger type at the bottom.”
