Vero Possumus

Vero PossumusApparently Senator Barack Obama was a bit cheeky when he altered a presidential seal during his campaign. The seal would usually have an eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch above the words ‘E pluribus unum’ – meaning ‘out of many one’.The Obama camp altered the words to read ‘Vero Possumus’, loosely translated as ‘yes, we can’.

It may have raised eyebrows on the campaign trail, but we think it’s great! Sure the Possum reference is a little oblique, but the sentiment resonates with Possum New Zealand and the work we do.
