Coats of arms

Okay. There's a word I'm looking for.
In a coat of arms, sometimes you find a small phrase across the top above the crest or below the insignia. The only word for it i've found was motto but my garbage can memory seems to be under the impression that there was another word for that.
what is that word? ( or am i just inventing things in my head?)

also would said motto appear on shields/tabards or would it only appear on the banners and other more decorative items ?
