The Host City Edit

The Host city for this FSC#99-edition, is Gibraltar, United Kingdom, without doubt the sunniest place in Britain! Officially, it is called a ‘British Overseas Territory’ and is located on the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula. It has an area of 6.7 km2 & shares its northern border with  Spain. The Rock of Gibraltar is the major landmark of the region.

At the Rock’s foot, is a densely populated city area, home to over 30,000 Gibraltarians, and other nationalities. The sovereignty of Gibraltar a major point of contention in Anglo-Spanish relations as Spain asserts a claim to the territory. Gibraltarians overwhelmingly rejected proposals for Spanish sovereignty in a 1967 referendum & again in 2002.

Under the Gibraltar constitution of 2006, Gibraltar governs its own affairs, with an elected parliament, though some powers, such as defence & foreign relations, remain the responsibility of the British government. The government consists of 10 elected members. The head of state is Queen Elizabeth II , the Queen of the United Kingdom, who is represented by the Governor of Gibraltar.
