Sette Giugno

Sette Giugno in
Days to go: 

7th of June in Malta commemorates the 1919 riots of the Maltese people against British rule. The Maltese people demanded representative government on the island and were subsequently granted a Constitution in 1921. The day also serves to honour and remember the four people who were killed when British troops fired their weapons into the crowd. Malta remained under British rule until independence in 1964.

7th of June is celebrated annually on 7 June in an effort to remember the struggle and sacrifice of the Maltese people in the formation of their nation.

Top facts about Sette Giugno

  • Malta had been under British rule for nearly 200 years before the riots occurred. Discontent began to spread in the nation, which eventually culminated into riots, because of the increased trade tensions following WWI. Even after the riots, Britain continued to officially rule Malta until 1964.
  • Malta’s official languages are Maltese and English. Maltese is an Arabic-based language, and as such sounds very similar, but it also has many Latin words mixed in from its proximity to Italy.
