Hi racabilly!!

I'd go with:

Victoria contra sodalitas invisa.

The literal translation of this latin phrase is:
"The victory against the hateful (or hated or detested) association"

victoria : victory  

contra : against

sodalitas : fellowship, companionship, secret society ...
            those are synonyms of Brotherhood
also :

invisus : hated, hateful.

invīsus , a, um, P. a. 
a. Hated, hateful, detested (class.). 
(a). Of persons, animals, etc.: persona lutulenta, impura, invisa,
Cic. Rosc. Com. 7,
From "Charlton T. Lewis, Charles Short, A Latin Dictionary" result

Maria at was kind enough to translate this for you. Her
biography: "I am an expert in Latin & Ancient Greek Language,
Literature and History, as well as in Italian Literature. I also have
a strong interest in modern art, as my husband was a painter. In this
field, the subject I know more about is Abstract Expressionism."
"Victoria ex Odioso Sodalicio"  
Hope this is just what you need!
