    I’m assuming it’s not Bournemouth’s “Pulchritudo et salubritas” or Aldershot’s militaristic “Pugna pro patria”.

    My guess is Blackburn’s very protestant “Arte et labore”, although I’d love it if the answer was Moor Green FC’s punning “Calx terminus esto”.

    Good man yourself, brilliant guess: Sheffield Wednesday, concilio et artis. I noticed it in reverse, as it were, looking at Erasmus and wondering why the phrase was strangely familiar.

    I was going to say Arsenal, “Victoria concordia crescit.” I always answer ‘Arsenal,’ no matter what the question.
