Malta - Republic Day

European Days and Weeks
Date: Thursday, 13 December 2018

Venue: Malta

This holiday is always celebrated on 13 December. In Malta, it is called 'Jum ir-Repubblika'. This holiday is one of five national days in Malta and marks the day in 1974, when Malta became a republic.


History of Maltese Republic Day

On 13 December 1974, the Maltese constitution was substantially revised. This effectively changed Malta from being a Commonwealth realm into a republic. The British monarch was no longer head of state and Sir Anthony Mamo became the first president of Malta. Despite independence and becoming a republic, British troops did not leave Malta until 31 March 1979; this was the first time in its long history that Malta was free from foreign soldiers. That day is commemorated by another public holiday - Freedom Day. 13 December is also the Feast Day of saint Lucia, the patron saint of Malta.
