Virtue Forever In Bloom

Another way of saying it...

Per Cassell's Latin Dictionary, "viridis" = "green" (and by extension "fresh", "young", "blooming" or "vigorous").

Virtue will flourish forever

This may not be grammatically exact (in terms of 1-to-1 tenses). However:
1) 'will' refers to a universal truth (as in: Boys will be boys)
2) That's how it would be rendered on a crest in English
