“Morte Prima Di Disonore”, or “Death Before Dishonor”, is a popular military slogan that is often depicted in a coiling scroll wrapped around a dagger. The saying has been used for military units at least as early as ancient Rome. The concept of death as preferable to dishonor was also urged in the Japanese bushido code of samurai warriors, who would rather die than live with the dishonor brought on by surrender. Today, the saying is a popular tattoo within different military units and groups.
