A celebration of traditional Maltese heraldry and heritage, Kunjom seeks to create an accessible platform to help any curious soul of Maltese descent find out more about their surname.


      The brainchild of designer Jonn Galea, the aim of the project is to recreate between 100 and 150 coats of arms for the most common Maltese surnames, all through a modern illustrative lens. These are then coupled with information hinting at the possible history and origin of each surname, and made available publicly online via the website kunjom.com.


      Kunjom does not seek to make any profits, with any proceeds made from the sale of prints going to Maltese charities helping families in need. Prints are available exclusively from il-lokal.
