Malta Independence Day History
Malta Independence Day celebrates Malta’s independence from Britain and the start of the island nation’s parliamentary democracy. Prior to 21 September 1964, Malta had been under British rule since the early 1800s. However, after independence in 1964, the British Monarch remained the head of state under the new parliamentary system until Malta became a Republic ten years later. Malta then joined the Commonwealth of Nations and has since maintained ties with Britain.
