Simon writes:- The omega sign represents the fact that we were the last of the three-trade Technician Apprentice entries and the eagle (drawn by Mike Sturgess), . . . well it just looked good. We chose the motto of “Nil Amiramous” from a list of Latin phrases that someone had acquired. (Now, with the benefit of the Internet, I think it should be “Nil A Miratus”). This phrase appealed to us because, apparently, it translated to “we are amazed at nothing”. Some people might think we were cynical. Some people might be right! But what would you expect from a bunch of know-it-all teenagers!
Looks like there is another version.. Mark sent his in and its has "Nil Admiramus"
