On Wednesday 12th February the Maltese Lieutenancy of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem organised a public lecture on Heraldry and Nobility in Malta.
This was delivered by Dr Charles Gauci, the first Chief Herald of Malta, an international expert on Heraldry, as well as a Knight of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre.
At the end of his talk Dr. Gauci presented H.E. Roberto Buontempo, our Lieutenant, with his personal coat of arms which, apart from the Buontempo arms, also depicts the Jerusalem Cross. It is worth noting that this is the first Coat of Arms to be registered in Malta.
Donations collected on the night will go towards the projects in the Holy Land which are being supported by our Lieutenancy.
The lecture was held at the Aula Prima of the University Campus in Valletta, the complimentary use of which was offered by the University of Malta in support of our cause.
