Malta and Europe’s rich heraldry tradition will be the focus of a masterclass which Heritage Malta will be streaming on Facebook on Tuesday, 4th May, at 6.30pm.

During this masterclass, the Chief Herald of Arms of Malta, Dr Charles A. Gauci, will be giving an overview of the evolution of heraldry in Malta and Europe and will be outlining the functions of the Office of the Chief Herald of Arms of Malta.

The masterclass will also delve into different types of coats of arms, which may be personal and hereditary, or impersonal and non-hereditary. Dr Gauci will explain how coats of arms are essentially insignia of identification. He will also dispel the common misconception that heraldry is the sole prerogative of the nobility and provide information on how one can apply for or register a Coat of Arms.
