The Maltese Flag
The flag of Malta. It is stated that the colours were given to Malta by Count Roger of Sicily, in 1901 however many say that this is a legend developed through time!
In the upper corner of the white field is the George Cross. The honour was awarded to the entire Maltese population for the exceptional bravery and gallantry during WW2. The Flag was adopted upon Malta's independence, on 21 September 1964.
As you might have realised the flag was not hung properly here as it should have been turned around and the cross should be seen from the right hand side.
