The White Rose
The White Rose — heraldic emblem of Yorkshire, where I was born.
Die Weiße Rose — resistance against genocide, racism and fascist orthodoxy.
Nam si vos omnibus imperitare vultis, sequitur ut omnes servitutem accipiant? — “For if you would rule the world, does it follow that the world must welcome servitude?” (Tacitus' version of Caratacus in Annals, 12.37.)
