ta' xbiex arm
The Ta' Xbiex coat of arms depicts a ship's wheel since it is the main marina in Malta. It was officially approved on 19th February 1993 when the Local Councils were set up in Malta for the first time. (Government Supplement No 15,718 - section C, No 30 ; Suppliment tal-Gazzetta tal-Gvern ta' Malta, Nru. 15,718, 19 ta' Frar, 1993, Taqsima C, Nru 30)
'Ta' means 'of' and 'Xbiex' either is derived from 'Xawbas' - a wild prickly shrub of the raspberry genus - or from 'Tax-Xbiek' meaning 'of the nets'.

Updated the flash intro by regenerating it using a program I wrote using Remobjects Chrome instead of Delphi, also reduced it in size.
