Hungarian in Jerusalem

Hungarians celebrate August 20 as St. Stephen's Day. Stephen was crowned King of Hungary over a thousand years ago.
This I learned at the always-enjoyable and ever-educational "Every day's a holiday? why wait to celebrate?" Great site, new everyday!
.
The side chapel that last year sported a wreath in Hungary's colors is in the crypt of the Dormition Abbey on Mount Zion.
Can anyone help me with the meaning of the inscription?

One of the many interesting things about your posts is how it seems like many countries have a piece of Israel. This is another example.
