This is a list of Croatian mottos. Croatia does not have an official motto.


  • Bog i Hrvati (God and the Croats) – This motto originates from Ante Starčević's speech to the Croatian Parliament (Sabor) on June 26, 1861, in which he stated that the future of Croatia should not be decided in Austria, but by God and the Croats.[1][2]
  • Za dom spremni (For the homeland, ready) – This motto was used by the Ustashe puppet regime from the period of 1941-1945 during World War II. It is still commonly used today by Croatian nationalists and supporters.[3][4]
