Welcome New Year, Welcome Euro (Ewro)
In Maltese the new currency will be called and written ewro whereas the cents will be centezmu for a single cent and centezmi when it is in plural form. The one and two-euro coins have the cross of the Knights of Malta, also known as the Maltese Cross.
The Maltese cross is identified as the symbol of an order of Christian warriors known as the or Knights of Malta. The cross is eight-pointed and has the form of four "V"-shaped arms joined together at their bases, so that each arm has two points. Its design is based on crosses used since the First Crusade. The eight points are said to symbolize the chivalric virtues:
Glory and honour
Contempt of death
Helpfulness towards the poor and the sick
Respect for the church
The middle denominations have the coat of arms of the Republic of Malta, just like all of the liri coins currently do. The present coat of arms which was introduced in 1988 shows a crown that looks like a fortification representing the fortifications of Malta. The Maltese flag in the form of a shield and around it there is an olive and palm branches which symbolizes peace which is traditionally associated to Malta. Beneath there is a ribbon upon which are written the words Repubblika ta' Malta ("Republic of Malta" in Maltese)
The smallest coins have a stylised version of the Mnajdra Temples, one of Malta 's architectural wonders and the oldest free-standing structures in the world
When I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in IE,
it has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide
you with a quick heads up! Other than that, excellent blog!
