This is a screen shot from the corner of the pittsburgpa.gov page and what I was referring to in my post.Flag of Pittsburgh - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The phrase Benigno Numine is the motto of William Pitt. It is generally translated as "With the Benevolent Deity" or "By the Favour of the Heavens".
It was adopted by the newly formed city in 1816 but somehow fell off seals and official documents and emblems in the early 20th century before being restored to the seal by City Council on July 3, 1950 and signed off by the Mayor on July 7, 1950. However even then the motto was not implemented until council looked into the matter in November 1958.
