Na­tional Record – Malta’s largest feast um­brella

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

The Youth Com­mit­tee form­ing part of the So­ci­età Fi­lar­mon­ica Maria Mater Gra­tiae of Żab­bar has been awarded the na­tional ti­tle for Malta’s Largest Feast Um­brella by The Malta Records.

This ti­tle was won af­ter the Youth Com­mit­tee ap­plied for this record with an um­brella which was man­u­fac­tured by the same com­mit­tee in 2001 for the feast of Our Lady of Graces. This year, as part of the 15th an­niver­sary of the pro­duc­tion of this um­brella, the Youth Com­mit­tee has asked the judges of The Malta Records to cer­tify this struc­ture as Malta’s largest um­brella.

The reg­u­la­tions for this record where al­ready set pre­vi­ously and in­cluded that this struc­ture must be left free­stand­ing for at least 30 min­utes be­fore the mea­sure­ments are taken and it must also with­stand wind forces up to scale 5, other­wise the sub­mis­sion will be dis­qual­i­fied.

The mea­sure­ments taken for this record are in or­der to cal­cu­late the to­tal vol­ume un­der the men­tioned struc­ture: the vol­ume of a trun­cated cone to­gether with that of a cylin­der.

The struc­ture be­long­ing to this band club has a to­tal vol­ume of 2,126.674m3 and is cer­ti­fied by The Malta Records as be­ing Malta’s Largest Feast Um­brella.

The Youth Com­mit­tee is also plan­ning that in the fu­ture it will be able to com­pete, with this same struc­ture, for the record ti­tle of the world largest um­brella which is cur­rently reg­is­tered in China with The Guin­ness World Records.
