National Day 2020 Graphic

  • Natalie Galvau

Celebrated annually on September 10th, is the official national day of the British overseas territory of Gibraltar. The day commemorates Gibraltar’s first sovereignty referendum of 1967, in which Gibraltarian voters were asked whether to pass under Spanish sovereignty, or remain under British sovereignty, with institutions of self-government.

Due to COVID-19 a lot of Gibraltarians based overseas could not celebrate National Day with their families. I decided to create these t-shirts as a way for people to be able to commemorate and (in a small way) celebrate Gibraltarian culture and community.
The illustrations hold reference to Gibraltarian culture.
