E pluribus unum is "A motto of the United States; Latin for “Out of many, one.” It refers to the Union formed by the separate states. E pluribus unum was adopted as a national motto in 1776 and is now found on the Great Seal of the United States and on United States currency."[1]

However, more recently the motto has been reinterpreted in politically correct ways, as supposedly referring to support for mass immigration, diversity, multiculturalism, cosmopolitanism, and/or integration (which are sometimes contradictory concepts).
