Sannat info – Emblem (The coat of arms consists of a standing bale of wheat with
two scythes above it)

The coat of arms of Sannat was designed for the occasion of the visit of the Prince
of Wales which occurred between the 6th and the 10th of April, 1876. It was designed
and painted by professor Nikolo' Zammit (1815-1899), who was a doctor, philosopher,
architect and painter. This coat of arms consists of a standing bale of wheat with
two scythes above it. Zammit was apparently implying that in the past, a lot of
wheat used to be grown in Sannat.

The motto of Sannat was most probably written by the Gozitan scholar Lorenzo Zammit
Haber (1876-1959). This motto says:

"Labor Ante Omnia"

which means:

"Work before everything"
