Equality, freedom, brotherhood- this motto of the French revolution adopted by Sokol, showed Sokol´s relationship to democracy. Shortly after the foundation of the association, Jindrich Fugner proposed that the members should call each other "brother". In June 1862, on the basis of Josef Barak´s proposal, it was agreed that the greeting would be "Nazdar" in stead of former "Zdar buh".
