I am not sure what this means at all. Any help would be appreciated.

For 'Gottwalte', check LEO:

God = Gott
Lord [rel.] = der Gott

to preside over sth. = über etw. walten . . .

Kliniken, Hotels, Restaurants an der http://www.google.de/search?hl=de&q=seehalde&btnG=Google-Suche&meta= "> Seehalde am Bodensee. Eine Halde ist ein Gelände-Abhang. "Gott walte" hier wohl im Sinne von "Gott beschütze".

Hi unsure,

let me see if I can consolidate these contributions for you:

Seehalde is the proper name of a location, mostly restaurants, clinics and hotels commonly in the vicinity of Lake Constance, Bavaria. If it's a brass button it could originate from a uniform, say, a doorman's greatcoat? "Gott walte" (noun, verb) means "God preside".

Using a little artistic license (by leaving out the space between "Gott" and "walte") the author has created a rhyming Motto, meaning "God preside (over) Seehalde".
