English translation:An omen, a sign (?) does not depend on anything
Explanation:
Signo may have a lot of meanings. This is something openly shown or designed to be shown. Say, it may be an omen, or a war-banner (a standard).

I think, that the main idea is that such a open sign is all-sufficient in itself, and does not depends on anything else.

egeat - lacks

signo -- a sign, an omen, etc.

\"A sign lacks nothing\".
