The pieces of the pieces include the coat of arms of Malta and the Europa Star logo. The setbacks represents the Gran Carracca Sant'anna, a warship renowned for its large size and its prodigious firepower.

The caraque was one of the most influential Renaissance ship conceptions. Robust construction and combining speed and maneuverability, the caraques could serve both merchant ships and warships. The order of the Saint-Jean-Caraque, Sant'anna, was launched in December 1522, almost at the same time when the knights lost Rhodes. This ship, pride of the Navy of the Order, transported Grand Master Philippe Villiers from Isle Adam to Malta in 1530. This event marked the start of the long stay of order on the island and the beginning of a New era in Maltese history.
