PLUS ULTRA: beyondIn the sixteenth century, Charles I of Spain and V of Germany who was the first King of the Spanish Empire, used the motto plus ultra challenging merchants and sailors to cross the border that had been marked in Gibraltar based on Greek mythology through of the Columns of Hercules that indicated: "non terrae plus ultra" - there is no earth beyond. Carlos I encouraged in this way to leave in search of possibilities on the other side of the ocean. This mythological belief was eradicated after the crossing of the ocean and later discovery of the Americas in 1492 by Christopher Columbus.Plus Ultra, has been and is until our time, the motto of the Spanish nation. A boost to the challenge in search of new opportunities and possibilities on the other side of the Atlantic.
