LATIN

A solis ortu usque ad occasum is a heraldic motto roughly meaning "From sunrise to sunset" in Latin. Inspired by the Biblical passage of Psalm 113:3,[1] it can be interpreted as the sentiment of the monarch's dominion over lands across the world, similar to how the British and Spanish Empires are/were called the "empire on which the sun never sets".
