That this House joins the people of Gibraltar as they celebrate their National Day on 10 September 2010, commemorating the 1967 referendum in which more than 99 per cent. of Gibraltarians voted to reject annexationby Spain and remain a territory of the Crown; notes the rich, diverse and unique culture of the Gibraltarians, which encompasses numerous ethnicities including Maltese, Andalusian, Genoese, Portuguese and most predominantly British; recognises the shared heritage and historical links between the peoples of the United Kingdom and Gibraltar since 1704; and wishes the loyal people of the Rock a wonderful day of traditional red and white festivities, as all Gibraltarians display pride in both their homeland and in being British.
