The City of London

The City of London is not large, covering about one square mile, which extends from Temple Bar on the west to Aldgate on the east and from the Thames on the south to the City-road on the north.

The cities motto is 'Domine Dirige Nos' Lord Direct Us, referenced in a Guildhall manuscript dated 1609 and again in John Stow's Survey of London dated 1633. The motto is used today on the London city arms.
