On the United States Patent and Trademark Office website, I searched Coca-Cola and found this quite interesting little trademark...Coca-Cola Verdad. It has under Notes "The English translation of VERDAD is TRUTH"...what could this mean? I'm not sure, but it is a Coca-Cola Corporation in Georgia copyright. It was filed in November 2002, and was filed in January 2004...?


Also, in a more in-depth search...I found the original filed drawing of the Coca-Cola logo:

verdad could be used in the sense of "real" or "genuine", as in "the real thing"

Oh, I see. That could make sense because it is Spanish for "truth" and Pepsi has a bunch of new copyrights for Spanish things such as Es Pepsi (It's Pepsi [Pepsi, It's the Cola])...but they do have Pepsi X copyrighted for the US.

Coke's latest tagline is just "Real" -- so that could be the reason for the Verdad.
