Our Town - Paola
• Paola’s motto and Coat-of-Arms
• Paola’s motto is ORDO CONDODIT which means Established by the
Order and this refers to the Order of the Knights of St John. Paola is in
fact the only village to have been established by the Grandmaster’s
Knights who more often established towns. The village’s first coat of
arms was a red and white eight-pointed Maltese Cross (also called
the Cross of the Knights of the Order of St John) placed exactly at the
centre of a white and red background, incidentally also colours of
the Maltese flag.
• In 1994, the local council changed the coat of arms. It depicted a
yellow spiral (similar to the ones found etched in stone at the pre-
historic temples in Paola) on a red background. In 1994 the local
council changed Paola’s coat of arms yet again. To the present
day, it depicts three adjacent yellow spirals on a red background
beneath which, one can see three azure peacocks on three golden
bales of hay on a white background. These symbols were
incorporated into today’s coat of arms because they were also on
the coat of arms of Grandmaster Antoine De Paule after whom the
city was named.
