Within the framework of the Erasmus+ project “Improvement of good governance of climbing and mountaineering in Europe”, the European Union of Mountaineering Associations (EUMA), together with the European Ramblers Association (ERA) developed a handbook Waymarking in Europe which is available for download for free from the EUMA web site:
It provides valuable information about the variety of European waymarking. The handbook will facilitate the orientation when walking, hiking, mountaineering or climbing on the European trails.
The handbook includes a description of 44 waymarking systems in 34 European countries including a handy overview table. The book was created as an orientation aid for walkers, hikers, runners, mountaineers and climbers who plan outdoor activities in other European countries.
This handbook provides a useful tool for our members on their travels, and we hope to one day be in a position to include information on waymarking in the Maltese islands, once such a system is put in place.

Very very interesting- some years ago i had worked on this and rambling in Malta and even published some books. Is there scope to have an official system in Malta rathe rthan ad hoc systems MTA, ERA and individual local councils propose?
Sorry just seeing this now Jonathan. I would say that there is certainly scope for having an official system. Since you commented the EUMA project has progressed. I reached out to the Ramblers via their website but got no response so far. Will follow up though definitely.
Looks good. Link to Ramblers Association?
