Malta is a small island nation in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. Malta lies directly south of Sicily, east of Tunisia and north of Libya. The country's official languages are Maltese and English. The strategically located islands constituting the Maltese nation have been ruled by various powers and fought over for centuries. Malta gained her Independence from her last (British) rulers on September 21, 1964, and became an island Republic on December 13, 1974. Since May 1, 2004, Malta is the smallest member state of the European Union, both in population (404,000) and area (316 sq. km). Malta is the only nation in the world that has collectively been awarded the George Cross (by King George VI on April 15, 1942) for conspicuous gallantry in World War II, and its flag bears a replica of that award.
