In the coldest month, January, the high temperature averages Over different species of flowering plants grow on the Rock.
Gibraltar is the only place in Europe where the Gibraltar candytuft Iberis gibraltarica is found growing in the wild; the plant is otherwise native to North Africa.
It is the symbol of the Upper Rock nature reserve. Olive and pine trees are among the most common of those growing around the Rock.
Most of the Rock's upper area is covered by a nature reserve which is home to around Barbary macaques , the famous "apes" of Gibraltar, which are actually monkeys.
These are the only wild apes or monkeys found in Europe. Three-quarters of the world population live in the Middle Atlas mountains of Morocco.
Recent genetic studies and historical documents point to their presence on the Rock before its capture by the British , having possibly been introduced during the Islamic period.
A superstition analogous to that of the ravens at the Tower of London states that if the apes ever leave, so will the British. In , British Prime Minister Winston Churchill was so concerned about the dwindling population of apes that he sent a message to the Colonial Secretary requesting that something be done about the situation.
Other mammals found in Gibraltar include rabbits, foxes and bats. Dolphins and whales are frequently seen in the Bay of Gibraltar.
Migrating birds are very common and Gibraltar is home to the only Barbary partridges found on the European continent. In , Graham Watson, Gibraltar's MEP , highlighted conservationists ' fears that urban development , tourism and invasive plant species were threatening Gibraltar's own plants as well as birds and bat species.
In May a report by the World Health Organization showed that Gibraltar had the worst air quality in any British territory.
The report concentrated on PM10 and PM2. The British military traditionally dominated Gibraltar's economy , with the naval dockyard providing the bulk of economic activity.
This, however, has diminished over the last 20 years, and is estimated to account for only 7 percent of the local economy, compared to over 60 percent in Today, Gibraltar's economy is dominated by four main sectors: financial services , online gambling , shipping, and tourism, which includes duty-free retail sales to visitors.
Gibraltar's labour market shows an extremely low unemployment rate of around 1 percent. In the early s, many bookmakers and online gaming operators moved to Gibraltar to benefit from operating in a regulated jurisdiction with a favourable corporate tax regime.
This corporate tax regime for non-resident controlled companies was phased out by January and replaced by a still favourable fixed corporate tax rate of 10 percent.
Tourism is also a significant industry. Gibraltar is a popular port for cruise ships and attracts day visitors from resorts in Spain.
The Rock is a popular tourist attraction, particularly among British tourists and residents in the southern coast of Spain.
It is also a popular shopping destination, and all goods and services are VAT free, but may be subject to Gibraltar taxes.
Branches and franchises of international retailers such as Tommy Hilfiger and Sunglass Hut are also present in Gibraltar, as is the Spanish clothing company Mango.
A number of British and international banks have operations based in Gibraltar. Jyske Bank claims to be the oldest bank in the country, based on Jyske's acquisition in of Banco Galliano , which began operations in Gibraltar in In , Gibraltar enacted the Companies Taxation and Concessions Ordinance now an Act , which provided for special tax treatment for international business.
Gibraltar has several attractive attributes as a financial centre , including a common law legal system and access to the EU single market in financial services.
The Financial Services Commission FSC ,  which was established by an ordinance in now an Act that took effect in , regulates the finance sector.
As of [update] , Gibraltar has 0. The currency of Gibraltar is the Gibraltar pound , issued by the Government of Gibraltar under the terms of the Currency Notes Act.
These banknotes are legal tender in Gibraltar alongside Bank of England banknotes. Unofficially, most retail outlets in Gibraltar accept the euro , though some payphones and the Royal Gibraltar Post Office , along with all other government offices, do not.
The growing demand for space is being increasingly met by land reclamation ; reclaimed land currently comprises approximately one tenth of the territory's total area.
The demographics of Gibraltar reflect the many European and other economic migrants who came to the Rock over years ago, after almost all of the Spanish population left in The official language of Gibraltar is English, and is used by the government and in schools.
Most locals are bilingual , also speaking Spanish. However, because of the varied mix of ethnic groups which reside there, other languages are also spoken on the Rock.
Berber and Arabic are spoken by the Moroccan community, as are Hindi and Sindhi by the Indian community. Maltese is spoken by some families of Maltese descent.
Llanito also often involves code-switching to English and Spanish. Gibraltarians often call themselves Llanitos. According to the census, approximately Other Christian denominations include the Church of England 7.
Several of these congregations are represented by the Gibraltar Evangelical Alliance. The third religion in size is Islam 3. There are four functioning Orthodox synagogues in Gibraltar and several kosher establishments.
Education in Gibraltar generally follows the English model , operating within a three tier system. Gibraltar has 15 state schools , two private schools and a college of further education, Gibraltar College.
Government secondary schools are Bayside Comprehensive School for boys and Westside School for girls, and Prior Park School Gibraltar is an independent coeducational secondary school.
All Gibraltarian students used to follow the UK student loans procedure , applying for a loan from the Student Loans Company which was then reimbursed in full by the Government of Gibraltar.
In August , this system was replaced by the direct payment by the government of grants and tuition fees. The overwhelming majority of Gibraltarians continue their studies at university level.
All Gibraltarians are entitled to health care in public wards and clinics at St Bernard's Hospital and primary health care centre.
All other British citizens are also entitled to free-of-charge treatment on the Rock on presentation of a valid British passport during stays of up to 30 days.
Dental treatment and prescribed medicines are free of charge for Gibraltarian students and pensioners. Some specialist care is provided by visiting consultants and in UK and Spanish hospitals.
First-line medical and nursing services are provided at the Primary Care Centre, which has 16 GPs, with more specialised services available at St Bernard's Hospital , a bed civilian hospital opened in Psychiatric care is provided by King George V Hospital.
As of the authority was responsible for the health of some 27, individuals. The culture of Gibraltar reflects Gibraltarians' diverse origins.
While there are Spanish mostly from nearby Andalusia and British influences, the ethnic origins of most Gibraltarians are not confined to these ethnicities.
Other ethnicities include Genoese , Maltese , Portuguese , and German. British influence remains strong, with English being the language of government, commerce, education and the media.
Gibraltar's first sovereignty referendum is celebrated annually on Gibraltar National Day 10 September. It is a public holiday, during which most Gibraltarians dress in their national colours of red and white.
Until , the tradition had been to also release 30, similarly coloured balloons, which represented the people of Gibraltar.
However, this tradition has now been ended because of the threat that it poses to wildlife, particularly marine. The radio service is also internet-streamed.
Special events and the daily news bulletin are streamed in video. The other local radio service is operated by the British Forces Broadcasting Service which also provides a limited cable television network to HM Forces.
The largest and most frequently published newspaper is the Gibraltar Chronicle , Gibraltar's oldest established daily newspaper and the world's second oldest English language newspaper to have been in print continuously  with daily editions six days a week.
Native Gibraltarians have produced some literature of note. Throughout the s and s, several anthologies of poetry were published by Leopoldo Sanguinetti , Albert Joseph Patron and Alberto Pizzarello.
Trino Cruz is a bilingual poet originally writing English but now mainly in Spanish, who also translates Maghreb poetry.
Mary Chiappe and Sam Benady have also published a series of detective books centred on the character of the nineteenth-century Gibraltarian sleuth Bresciano.
Gibraltarian cuisine is the result of a long relationship between the Andalusian Spaniards and the British, as well as the many foreigners who made Gibraltar their home over the past three centuries.
This marriage of tastes has given Gibraltar an eclectic mix of Mediterranean and British cuisine. Profiteroles , a French choux pastry ball with a sweet filling of whipped cream, is considered to be Gibraltar's national dish.
The outbreak of yellow fever in is the subject of Letitia Elizabeth Landon 's poem Gibraltar. Scene During the Plague. She published two further poetical illustrations on Gibraltar the following year, Gibraltar—from the Sea.
In , there were 18 Gibraltar sports associations with official recognition from their respective international governing bodies.
Others have submitted applications for recognition which are being considered. The government supports the many sporting associations financially.
Gibraltar also competes in the bi-annual Island Games , which it hosted in and again in Football is a popular sport in Gibraltar.
The Gibraltar Football Association applied for full membership of UEFA , but their bid was turned down in in a contentious decision. Cricket enjoys popularity in Gibraltar.
Rugby union is fairly popular and one of the fastest growing team sports. Gibraltar Rugby Football Union applied for membership of Europe's governing body for rugby.
Gibraltar is believed to be the birthplace of the rugby variant Tag Rugby. Darts is also a popular sport, with the Gibraltar Darts Association a full member of World Darts Federation since running leagues and other regular tournaments.
Gibraltar has a digital telephone exchange supported by a fibre optic and copper infrastructure; the telephone operator Gibtelecom also operates a GSM network.
Internet connectivity is available across the fixed network. Gibraltar's top-level domain code is. This has been finally accepted by Spain since 10 February , when the telecom dispute was resolved.
Within Gibraltar, the main form of transport is the car. Motorcycles are also very popular and there is a good modern bus service.
There is a Gibraltar Cable Car that runs from ground level to the top of the Rock, with an intermediate station at Apes' Den.
Restrictions on transport introduced by Spanish dictator Francisco Franco closed the land frontier in and also prohibited any air or ferry connections.
In , the land border was reopened. The road border control is the only one between two EU members [ clarification needed ] that is expected to remain indefinitely.
Bulgaria, Croatia and Romania have border controls which are expected to be removed around Motorists and pedestrians crossing the border with Spain are occasionally subjected to very long delays.
GB Airways operated a service between Gibraltar and London and other cities for many years. The airline initially flew under the name "Gibraltar Airways".
In , and in anticipation of service to cities outside the UK, Gibraltar Airways changed its name to GB Airways with the belief that a new name would incur fewer political problems.
As a franchise, the airline operated flights in full British Airways livery. EasyJet have since added Bristol and Manchester and also operated flights to Liverpool between and Until entering administration in October , Monarch Airlines operated the largest number of flights between the United Kingdom and Gibraltar, with scheduled services between Gibraltar and Luton , London Gatwick , Birmingham and Manchester.
The Spanish national airline , Iberia , operated a daily service to Madrid which ceased for lack of demand. Gibraltar International Airport is unusual not only because of its proximity to the city centre resulting in the airport terminal being within walking distance of much of Gibraltar but also because the runway intersects Winston Churchill Avenue , the main north—south street, requiring movable barricades to close when aircraft land or depart.
New roads and a tunnel, which will end the need to stop road traffic when aircraft use the runway, were planned to coincide with the building of a new airport terminal building with an originally estimated completion date of ,   although it has not been completed because of delays.
In addition, the Algeciras Heliport across the bay offers scheduled services to Ceuta. Gibraltar Cruise Terminal receives a large number of visits from cruise ships.
The Strait of Gibraltar is one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world. Passenger and cargo ships anchor in the Gibraltar Harbour.
Also, a ferry links Gibraltar with Tangier in Morocco. The ferry between Gibraltar and Algeciras , which had been halted in when Franco severed communications with Gibraltar, was finally reopened on 16 December , served by the Spanish company Transcoma.
Water supply and sanitation in Gibraltar have been major concerns for its inhabitants throughout its history.
There are no rivers, streams, or large bodies of water on the peninsula. Gibraltar's water supply was formerly provided by a combination of an aqueduct, wells, and the use of cisterns, barrels and earthenware pots to capture rainwater.
This became increasingly inadequate as Gibraltar's population grew in the 18th and 19th centuries and lethal diseases such as cholera and yellow fever began to spread.
In the late 19th century, a Sanitary Commission instigated major improvements which saw the introduction of large-scale desalination and the use of giant water catchments covering over 2.
Today Gibraltar's supply of drinking water comes entirely from desalination , with a separate supply of saltwater for sanitary purposes.
Both supplies are delivered from huge underground reservoirs excavated under the Rock of Gibraltar. Outside the United Kingdom, the RGP is the oldest police force of the former British Empire , formed shortly after the creation of London's Metropolitan Police in when Gibraltar was declared a crown colony on 25 June In general, the Gibraltar force follows British police models in its dress and its mostly male constables and sergeants on foot patrol wear the traditional custodian helmet , the headgear of the British "bobby on the beat".
The helmet is traditionally made of cork covered outside by felt or serge -like material that matches the tunic.
The vehicles also appear virtually identical to typical UK police vehicles, but are left hand drive. The force, whose name received the prefix "Royal" in , currently numbers over officers divided into a number of units.
These include the CID , drug squad, special branch , firearms, scene of crime examiners , traffic, marine and operations units, sections or departments.
Gibraltar's defence is the responsibility of the United Kingdom tri-services British Forces Gibraltar. In January , the Ministry of Defence announced that the private company Serco would provide services to the base.
The announcement resulted in the affected trade unions striking. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

In April , Spanish Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis announced that Spain hoped to sign off a bilateral agreement with Britain over Gibraltar before October so as not to hinder a Brexit transition deal.
Talks between London and Madrid had progressed well. While reiterating the Spanish long-term aim of "recovering" Gibraltar, he said that Spain would not hold Gibraltar as a "hostage" to the EU negotiations.
Questions were raised over the future of free-flowing traffic at the Gibraltar—Spain border. Gibraltar, like the UK, is outside the Schengen Area.
Gibraltar was never part of the EU's customs union, so there are already more detailed checks on goods moving over the Spanish-Gibraltar border.
A Spanish diplomat has indicated that any agreement on airline landing rights for flights between the EU and the UK agreed during Brexit negotiations would not apply to the Gibraltar International Airport.
Anticipating a loss of access to EU market as a result of Brexit, the Government of Gibraltar received "a firm commitment from the United Kingdom government to maintain and broaden access to their financial markets," including "automatic access to the United Kingdom in banking, insurance, investment services and any other similar area where cross-border directives currently apply".
A special committee will be created, which shall handle Gibraltar—EU matters such as free movement for people and border controls.
It will contain only representatives from Spain and the UK. After Brexit, some agreements do apply during the transition period.
