Historical reference.

Gott mit Uns was the motto of the Prussian royal family (since 1701) and the German emperors (since 1871). From 1921 to 1935 this inscription was on the buckles of the Reichswehr (German armed forces), and then (until 1945) on the buckles of the Heer (German ground forces, they are not quite right called Wehrmacht by folks). Source:
