Flag of Malta

Malta is a densely populated developed European microstate in the European Union. The island nation comprises an archipelago of seven islands situated in the Southern European areas of the Mediterranean sea, 93 km off the coast of Sicily (Italy), 288 km east of Tunisia and 300 km north of Libya. The islands enjoy a Mediterranean climate.

Throughout its history, Malta's location in the Mediterranean Sea has given it a strategic importance. Consequently, a sequence of powers including the Sicilians, Phoenicians, Romans, Fatimids, Knights of St John and British have all conquered Malta. Malta gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1964 but remains a member of the Commonwealth of Nations. It is currently a member of the European Union, which it joined in 2004, and also of the United Nations.

Malta is known for its world heritage sites, most prominently the Megalithic Temples which are the oldest free-standing structures on Earth. According to the Acts of the Apostles, St. Paul was shipwrecked on the island. Malta is also considered a potential location for the mythical lost island of Atlantis.

On 1st December 2010, MaltaPost p.l.c. celebrated the 150th Anniversary of the first Malta Stamp; the Queen Victoria Half Penny which was first issued for local use in December of 1860. The engraver of the die of the stamp was Jean Ferdinand Joubert de la’ Ferte, and was printed by Thomas de la Rue in UK. Following the introduction of the inland deliveries, the Halfpenny Yellow was introduced and covered the cost of a letter up to ½ oz. in weight. The Halfpenny yellow was used between 1860 and 1885. Due to different issue dates the Halfpenny yellow comes in a variety of shades, watermarks and perforations.
