Let faith bloom forth in strength

Postby fairsky » Fri Dec 06, 2013 1:12 pm

I'm a writer and currently designing a coat of arms for a fictional kingdom. The phrase "Let faith bloom forth in strength" is supposed to be the motto of the people. Can anyone help me translate this particular phrase to latin?

Thanks in advance.

I'm just a beginner in Latin, but just for the fun of it I tried to translate, so I would double check it with a Latin speaker before using it...

fides vim effloreat - let faith blossom forth into strength
fides vi effloreat - let faith blossom forth by (the aid of) strength

fides fortiter floreat

alliteration
internal rhyme


Vis sometimes connotes brute strength or physical violence.
