(Latin: Who will separate [us]?) is a motto of the Royal Dragoon Guards, the Order of St. Patrick, The Royal Ulster Rifles, The London Irish Rifles, the Irish Guards and the North Irish Horse. The phrase also appears on the Seal of South Carolina.
It was the motto of the 4th/7th Royal Dragoon Guards, a cavalry regiment of the British Army from 1922 to 1992. It was the motto of the Connaught Rangers, a British Army regiment, from its amalgamation in 1881 until it was disbanded in 1922. Prior to this, it was the motto of the precursor regiment of the Rangers, the 88th Regiment of Foot (Connaught Rangers) which was founded in 1793. It was also the motto of the Royal Ulster Rifles and the Ulster Defence Regiment.
It was the motto of the former Government of Northern Ireland and appeared on the province's defunct coat of arms. It is also the motto of the Ulster Defence Association, a proscribed loyalist paramilitary in Northern Ireland. The source is the Vulgate translation of Romans, 8:35: "Quis nos separabit a caritate Christi...", translated as "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?".
