Referred to locally as ‘Jum 1-Indipendenza,’ this public holiday sees a vibrant array of festivities, including a diverse range of performances and patriotic concerts. The Bishop of Malta organizes a solemn Pontifical Mass, which is followed by a touching flower-laying ceremony at the St. John’s Co-Cathedral in Valletta. These events pay homage to Malta’s cultural and religious heritage and commemorate the nation’s independence with reverence.
