Malta’s strategic location in the Mediterranean Sea made it perfect for military, navies and international trade.
Over the years, Malta has been controlled by many empires including the Phoenicians, the Romans, the Greeks, the Arabs, the Normans, the Sicilians, the French, and finally the British.
On 21st September 1964, Malta was declared an independent country when the Malta Independence Act was approved by the British Parliament.
Since then, crowds flock every year to watch the military parades at the Granaries in Floriana to commemorate this important event in Malta’s history.
Please be advised our Malta office will be closed on Tuesday 21st September to observe this public holiday. Our Isle of Man and Hong Kong offices will remain open.
