It isn't Greek; it's Latin. Veritas et Aeuqtias - Verity and Equity - Truth and Justice.
Who needs an example???

Made popular by the tattoos sported by the heroic brothers in Boondock Saints the "Phrase Veritas Aequitas is not actually a phrase but rather two seperate words.

Veritas = VAIR-ee-taws
Aequitas = EK-wee-taws

Veritas: truth
Aequitas: justice, fairness
I just got Veritas Aequitas tattooed on my arms like the guys from Boondock Saints. their uber chill

It is quite possible that the words veritas and aequitas come from the Latin version of Isaiah 59:14 "et conversum est retrorsum iudicium et iustitia longe stetit quia corruit in platea veritas et aequitas non potuit ingredi" -- which translates to the King James version as "And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter."
Veritas Aequitas

Truth and equity
equity meaning justice

Its base form is the ancient Greek language and stands for "Truth Justice"

To some this is a very powerful combination of words, that have a deep meaning and power of their own.
To others, it is a catch phrase used in the movie Boondock Saints, kindof like a motto.

I believe it is a basis for what most humans should live their life by, day and day. Truth and Justice would basically end all crime. Will that day ever come?
1. Hey, I completely believe in Veritas Aequitas.
2. Wasn't that cool when the guys had Veritas and Aequitas on their hands?
