Quem pode me ajudar a verter para o inglês essa expressão?
Obrigada

English translation:be very loyal to
Explanation:
As we do not seem to have an adequate idiomatic expression, I would opt for something descriptive like this. The only Idiomatic expression which comes close in English would be "fly the flag for" the company, although this may conjure up notions of jingoism in the reader.
