Gibraltar is a British overseas territory, located on the southern end of the Iberian peninsula at the entrance of the Mediterranean. Gibraltar peninsula has  an area of 6.843 square kilometres and population of about 30,000 inhabitants, making it one of the most densely populated territories in the world, with average of  4,290 inhabitants per square kilometre.  
The official language of Gibraltar is English, and is used by the Government and in schools. Most locals arebilingual, also speaking Spanish. However, because of the varied mix of ethnic groups which reside there, other languages are also spoken on the Rock. Under its 2006 Constitution Gibraltar governs its own affairs, though some powers, such as defence and foreign relations, remain the responsibility of the UK Government.

As Gibraltar issues its own stamps and has its own postal service, Reachel used these wonderful stamps representing The New 7 Wonders of the World - first one showing Christ Redeemer, Brazil and the second showing Petra, Jorda. Thank you, Reachel!
