The Oxford English dictionary defines civicness as ‘relating to a city or town, especially its administration; municipal’ or ‘relating to the duties or activities of people in relation to their town, city, or local area’ It also tells us that the origin of the term lies in the ‘mid 16th century and comes from the French civique or Latin civicus, from civis ‘citizen’. The original use was in civic garland, crown, etc., translating Latin corona civica, denoting a garland of oak leaves and acorns given in ancient Rome to a person who saved a fellow citizen’s life’.
