Hi starfox,

From Latin to English, the literal translation is "To live free and delay".

Please let me know if that answers your question.

Best regards,

Did you mean "vixi liber et moriar"?  If so, it means "Live Free And
Die So."  Please let me know if that is what you are looking for.

In order to close the question, I need to post my information here, so
here it is again.

"Vixi liber et moriar" is Latin for "live free and die so."

Here is my online source for this information:

"A red and white Tudor rose representing England and a purple thistle
representing Scotland occupy the [City of Annapolis, Maryland's]
flag's center, with the Latin phrase 'Vixi liber et moriar" - I will
live free and die so - inscribed in black on a gold ribbon at the

Homeown Annapolis: The Capital Online

Search Strategy:

Using your entire phrase as a Google search term turned up nothing, so
I conducted a successful search using only the first two words of your
phrase, which seemed to me to be the most likely to be correct:

"vixi liber"

I was happy to be able to give you a prompt correct answer.  If
anything is unclear, please ask for clarification before rating it.

yes, I'm happy with the answer, again thank you for the quick
response! noone in Annapolis, I spoke to knew the answer! ;)
