SEMINARS, SYMPOSIUMS, EXHIBITS, PUBLICATIONS
The SGHS has organized a meeting of heraldic
artists - authors of the municipal symbols in Slovakia, Slovak-Czech symposium
"Heraldry in Slovakia", proceedings of which
were published in 1997 (as the first volume of the "Bibliotheca Heraldica
Slovaca" series), as well as the colloquium "Civil Heraldry in Slovakia" (2000).
One of the most successful project was the travelling exhibition "Contemporary
Slovak Heraldic Art", which presented the works of Slovak heraldic
designers. The exhibition could be seen in several Slovak towns and later
also abroad (the Ukraine, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Poland, Slovenia, Austria,
Canada, USA etc.). The permanent exhibition of this kind can be seen in
the Castle of Trenčín, Slovakia, since 1997.
The latest successful heraldic projects were the edition of the poster/map
"Slovakia in Municipal Symbols" (1996) and a representative
monograph "Osem storočí slovenskej heraldiky" (Eight
Centuries of Slovak Heraldry, 1999).
Within the frames of the SGHS a project of documentation
of the heraldic monuments in Slovakia was proposed. This, however, has
not been realized yet. Results of similar activities done by individual
members and covering some regions of Slovakia are maintained in the SGHS archives. One can find here also the bio-bibliographical documentation
on several outstanding Slovak as well as foreign heraldists. In the reference
library there are especially foreign heraldic periodicals.
