ABOUT THE ART

Honi soit qui mal y pense is an Anglo-Norman maxim which rather means, "Shame on whomsoever would think badly of it," or "May he be shamed who thinks badly of it".

Its literal translation from Old French is "Shame be to him who thinks evil of it." It is sometimes re-interpreted as "Evil (or shame) be to him that evil thinks." In contemporaneous French usage, it is usually used ironically, to insinuate the presence of hidden agendas or conflicts of interest.

The saying's most famous use is as the motto of the British chivalric Order of the Garter. It is also inscribed at the end of the manuscript of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, but that appears to have been a later addition.
