300 years of British Gibraltar

Tercentenary Gibraltarians encircle the Rock in 2004. In 2004, Gibraltar celebrated the tercentenary (the 300th anniversary) of its capture. In recognition of and with thanks for its long association with Gibraltar, the Royal Navy was given the freedom of the City. Another event saw nearly the entire population, dressed in red, white and blue, link hands to form a human chain encircling the Rock.
