  4. 4. More info about Malta • Malta's climate is typical of the Mediterranean and is strongly influenced by the sea. The Maltese Islands have a pleasantly sunny climate with a daily average of around 12 hours sunshine in summer going down to 5 to 6 hours in mid-winter. • Malta Population : 409,836 citizens for more information kindly view following link phics_profile.html
  5. 5. 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.
