Malta Independence Day

It was revoked and restored before independence was finally granted. Independence Day is celebrated with parades and festivities throughout the country. More...

Resistance to significance of Independence Day bred useless division




A symbol of national unity and pride in most countries, Independence Day in Malta became a hallmark of divisive partisan politics. Professor Joseph Pirotta, a political historian, traces the prickly path that led to independence after 164 years under the British.

Independence Day 2014 is doubly welcome. It is the 50th anniversary of the day Malta became a sovereign nation State.
It is, however, also welcome because a Labour administration is committed to the national celebration of the most significant date in Maltese history.
