Our motto origins from 1920

Today it is a motto quoted from presidential speech in 1920:

“The anomaly of being a Jew as a refrain of ridicule and pity was eliminated by the action of Maccabi VAC. Behold the name of  VAC as Fencing and Athletics Association came up and said :we undertake a Jewish name, in fact, not only have been willing to take, but let the Hungarian society know about it, shout it out : who wants to see a real Jewish team this is the Jewish power and the real Jewish Look who created a real resource out of our heart and a single symbol. “
