Maybe a busted knight's helmet or a battered shield? Both would tie into the medieval aesthetic you've got going on, and represent the fact that most knights fought and died for something other than glory.
The source of the title is the Declaration of Arbroath written in 1320, appealing to the Pope for recognition of the independence of the Kingdom of Scotland.

It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom -- for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.

Thanks again for all the feedback. It is always appreciated.
