The Administrative Committee  is appointed every two years by means of an application process as stipulated in the statute of the club. The persons who are eligible to submit their application, and also vote, need to be members of the society. Local band-players, over the age of 18, are also eligible. The Committee holds regular meetings  to manage the club and the premises in the most transparent way and in the best interest of the members.

The club's official flag is red with a small-shield in the middle containing the arm which is composed of eight horizontal stripes, four white and four black, alternating sequence. In the middle of the arm, between the third stripe from the top and mid- third stripe from the bottom, there is a gold cross rounded by a wreath. In the upper corner there is a six - point star, each tip made of two triangles one white and one blue, in alternating sequence. At each corner of the flag lodge an arm which represents Malta, St. George Martyr, the Grand master Pinto and the parish.

The official anthem of the band has been composed by Mro Frank Galea and lyrics by Dr.Carmelo Bianchi Another important and highly valued music composition is the Apotheosis of St George Martyr, music by Mro.Frank Galea, verses by Dr. Karmenu Mallia.

This hymn may be performed only by Anici Band, similar to the march ‘Demm Gorgjan', or as it is known the Letter ‘A', composed by Mro.Sunny Galea and lyrics by Dr.Carmelo Bianchi. This march is automatically entered into each collection of marches the band publishes. The name of the band "Anici" is the surname of the noble family of St. George Martyr and one can easily appreciate the link between the Band, its patron and city Pinto's, St. George Martyr.

So the band is called the band of the patron  The band also is known "tal-Istilla" because the official emblem contains a star.
