I really like the phrase "cooperators veritatis" -- but when you compare it to the phrase on the design in Post #4, there's an extra letter in the phrase "cooperators" - the print is small on my screen and it looks like "cooperatores" -- Is anybody here competent in Latin and can clarify?

That's a typo. It should be 'cooperatores veritatis'.

Yes...

"Operator" is Latin for "worker". Co-Operator is therefore a co-worker. Cooperatores is plural, hence, co-workers.

Cooperatores veritatis = Co-Workers of/for the truth!

I like it!
