The flag of Malta consists of two vertical stripes of white and red color, and a cross of St. George lined with red at the top of the left side of the flag. Cross with an inscription “FOR GALLANTRY” was given to Malta by the British as an honor for resilience during the bombing by a German-Italian troops during the World War II. The flag was officially adopted after gaining the independence in 1964, and its design is probably derived from the flag of the Norman Hauteville House, which conquered Malta in the late 11th century. Allegedly, Count Roger of Hauteville gave snipping of their flag to Maltese when leaving to Normandy. Progressively, the flag overtook the role of national flag.
Most tourists come for the weather (there are more than 300 days of sunshine annually) and crystalline waters, which make it one of the best places to go snorkeling and diving in the Mediterranean. The water is in fact amongst the cleanest in the region.
But Malta’s distinctive appeal lies in its extraordinary 7,000 years of history. This small island has a greater concentration of historic sights than any country. Visitors can explore some of the oldest stone structures in the world here, as well as prehistoric temples, Roman catacombs and medieval villages.
