Resurgam: History of Portland


Portland’s motto is 'Resurgam,' which is Latin for 'Rises Again.' The city seal features a phoenix, the mythical bird that burns to ashes every five hundred years only to be reborn. In the past 350 years, settlements on Portland Peninsula have been destroyed one after another. Each time, however, the town is rebuilt, bigger and better than before.
