His first badge, bought by his mother, was dedicated to that very occasion. Later, Vitaliy Ivanchenko has devoted himself to heraldry. By now his collection comprises about 1.500 badges featuring armorial bearings. In addition, the guest has been engaged in phaleristics, collecting varied orders, badges and medals. The most captivating showpieces were demonstrated to the students.
