Assuming that you do not have internet access... by which I mean
you could have looked it up by googling..
Its from the old (as in Knights, chivalry etc) days and literally means:-
'Evil to him who evil thinks'

As far as I know it is part of the Garter (proper). However, I am not an expert in heraldry but I do know that it is the motto of the Order of the Garter, and it appears on many badges as a garter and also the garter belt.
