'in the shade we prosper' seems to be a popular belief of meaning.'
best response,
That makes sense. The original is singular because the country of Belize is the speaker, but Belizeans use "we" when speaking of the country. Similarly, "shade" is the literal meaning, but it refers to the shade cast by the trees in the jungle.
