The Republic of Malta occupies a very strategic location in the Mediterranean at the tip of the boot of Italy. Over the centuries, it was under the rule of Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Aragonese, Hapsburg Spain, Knights of St. John, French, and finally British. Malta declared its independence from British rule in 1964.
Malta's official languages are Maltese and English, but this card's greeting is in Italian and seems to say something along the lines of : From the beautiful flight I send you greetings.
Here's the back of the card with a message in English.
