From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Non incautus futuri is a motto meaning "Not Unmindful of the Future".[1]

The motto is used on the crest of Washington and Lee University, located in Lexington, Virginia. It is also the motto of the Lee family[2], along with the name of the Futuri Society at Stratford Hall Plantation in Stratford, Virginia.[3]

The motto was officially adopted by Leesburg, Virginia in 1998.[4][5]
