Fluctuat Nec Mergitur
_FLUCTUAT NEC MERGITUR_ is a Latin phrase meaning "Tossed by the waves but never sunk". The motto has been used since at least 1358 by the city of Paris . It can be literally translated as follows: * _fluctuat_: the verb _fluctuāre_ in the third-person singular of the present tense in the active voice in the indicative mood . _Fluctuāre_ means "to be wave-like", "move up and down"; of persons and passions, "to be tossed about", "to waver". In English the verb _fluctuāre_ became _fluctuate_. The subject is not explicitly expressed, and can be inferred to be "he", "she" or "it". "She" is used in the English translation because ships and cities are traditionally regarded as feminine. * _nec_: contraction of _neque_, which is equivalent to _et nōn_, meaning "and not", "and does not", "and is not", "nor". * _mergitur_: the verb _mergere_ in the third-person singular of the present tense in the passive voice in the indicative mood
