21st September - Independence Day

After long eras of foreign occupation, Malta became independent from the British Empire on the 21st September, 1964.

This day is considered as one of the most important dates in the Maltese history, and thus, a number of activities are organized around Malta, commemorating various monuments and remembering the ancestors who worked so hard to reach the state of independence for Malta.

 This year Malta will be celebrating 51 years of Independence.
