‘GIBRALTAR is red, white and free’ echoed around Casemates Square this afternoon as Chief Minister Fabian Picardo delivered a rip-roaring speech to kick-start Gibraltar National Day.
The crowd – a sea of red and white – packed out the square to listen to Picardo’s speech, as well as that of other politicians.
Following the speeches, the traditional releasing of the balloons – which has caused controversy in recent years – took place.
Then, as the crowds gazed up at the red and white speckled sky, Tina Turner’s Simply the best began to blast through the sound system, raising the Rock to its feet.
