Maat: Meaning in the Egyptian Context:

Maat or ma’at (thought to have been pronounced also spelled māt or mayet), was the ancient Egyptian concept of truth, balance, order, law, morality, and justice. Maat was also personified as a goddess regulating the stars, seasons, and the actions of both mortals and the deities, who set the order of the universe from chaos at the moment of creation. Her (ideological) counterpart was Isfet (injustice).

Maat was both the goddess and the personification of truth and justice. Her ostrich feather represents truth.
