‘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.
