Malta Coat of Arms


Maltese is a Semitic language spoken by approximately 520,000 people on the islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino. It is the national language of Malta, the co-official language of the country with English and one of the 24 official languages of the European Union.

Maltese stems from Sicilian Arabic, a northern form of Arabic that developed some time between the 9th and 14th centuries on Sicily.

By the 14th century Romance languages had mostly taken over and Sicilian Arabic was almost extinct in the Mediterranean. However, Sicilian Arabic continued to be used on Malta and developed into Maltese over the next 700 years
