In Latin, vero nihil verius literally translates "nothing truer than truth." This is the motto of the Scottish clan Weir and English family de Vere, the latter of whom comprised the Earls of Oxford. This motto is typically represented on the coat of arms for either family, along with a blue boar. This motto was recommended to the Weir/de Vere family by Queen Elizabeth I, sometime prior to 1574, after Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford was raised as a ward in Elizabeth's court and distinguished himself as a scholar and poet.

This phrase may also be written vero nil verius,, and it may be less literally translated "truth, and nothing but the truth."
