Malta to celebrate 50 years of Independence

A former British colony and naval base for the British army, Malta sought independence from the Queen following a democratic vote in the Maltese Parliament in 1962.

This process led to the British Empire releasing it’s Mediterranean stronghold and granting the Maltese islands their state of independence on the 21st September, 1964.

This year (2014) the islands will celebrate 50 years of Independence with a string of events organised by the National Festivities Committee.
