The Blayney Motto
Integra mens augustissima possessio
Translation:"An honest mind is the most glorious possession" 
or as I prefer: "A mind of integrity is the most glorious possession"
Other recorded Blayney mottos:
- Virtutis comes invidia Translations: "Virtue is the companion of envy" or "Virtue is accompanied by envy"
This is the motto in the "Blayney Room" at Gregygnog, it is also found on the Civil War Parliamentarian flag of Robert, Earl of Essex and subsequently adopted by the Devereux's Viscounts Hereford in 1748.
