In 1967, the people of Gibraltar had a decision to make – to remain under British sovereignty or to become part of Spain. It turned out to be an easy decision, and an overwhelming majority voted to remain.
The 50th anniversary of that decision – in 2017 – comes with an unusual twist, in that the majority of Gibraltarians also voted to remain in the European Union in the 2016 “Brexit” referendum. And as we know, that is not how the results of the referendum ultimately went.
Gibraltar has been a British Overseas Territory since 1713. It’s most distinctive landmark is The Rock of Gibraltar, the landform from which it gets its name. It’s a striking and distinctive sight – here are our HD aerials of it:
