Men outnumbered women in 2014 for the first time in over at least a century of record-keeping, a new demographic review published by the National Statistics Office has revealed.
The review found that there were 126 more men than women in Malta at the end of 2014, with 214,735 males and 214,609 females making up a total population of 429,344.
It found that while religious ceremonies still made up a 51.7 per cent majority of the 2,871 marriages celebrated in 2014, civil ceremonies were close behind at 48.3 per cent.
Life expectancy at birth was 82.1 years, with women's life expectancy more than four years greater than men's, at 84.3 years compared to 79.8 years.
Circulatory diseases were the most common cause of death, causing 37.6 per cent of all deaths. Tumours, at 28.5 per cent, were the second most common cause of death.
Other key points from the demographic review include:
the fertility rate of the total population stood at 1.42 whereas the rate for the Maltese population stood at 1.37

There were 622 separations and 399 divorces registered during 2014. 84.5 per cent of those divorces involved marriages that had lasted for at least 10 years

5 boats carrying 565 irregular migrants reached Maltese shores in 2014, with almost a quarter of these migrants being Syrian

A quarter of Malta's population is over 60 years old, while 17.6 per cent are under 18

6.4 per cent of Malta's population is foreign

Birkirkara, Mosta and St Paul's Bay are Malta's three largest localities in terms of population. Mdina, with 233 residents, is the smallest

Came across this:

I was always under the impression that they represented the 8 states the Knights came from (Auvergne, Provence, France, Aragon, Castille and Portugal, Italy, Baviere (Germany), and England) as that is what I was taught at school when I was young. It seems that that meaning was attributed to it later and the one of the obligations was the original one.

Do you know from where it originated (the eight pointed cross)?

Amalfi. - Italy

The geometric shape of the eight-pointed cross is found in antiquity, and especially as decorative element in Byzantine culture from about the 6th century. The association with Amalfi may go back to the 11th century, as the design is allegedly found on coins minted by the Duchy of Amalfi at that time.[clarification needed][1]

The Knights Hospitaller during the Crusades used a plain Latin cross. The association of the "Maltese Cross" with the order dates to the late 15th century, first mentioned in 1489 in a regulation requiring the knights of Malta to wear "the white cross with eight points".[2]

The association with Malta arose after the Knights Hospitaller moved from Rhodes to Malta in 1530. The first evidence for use of the Maltese Cross on Malta appears on the 2 Tarì and 4 Tarì Copper coins of the Grand Master Jean Parisot de Valette (Grand Master 1557–1568). The 2 and 4 Tarì Copper coins are dated 1567. This provides a date for the introduction of the Maltese Cross.[3]

The Maltese cross was depicted on the two mils coin in the old Maltese currency and is now shown on the back of the one and two Euro coins, introduced in January 2008.[4]

A quick snapshot of tourists’ impressions of Malta reveals mainly satisfied customers with one recurring gripe: the streets could be cleaner. Leeni Varis and Cyrielle Delmas conducted a vox pop in Valletta.
See video above. [source]

My father's former boss is one but as far as I know it's a very exclusive and small group. I think they even have their own passport.
