Watch: What does the word ‘Malta’ stand for in Greek?

In days of yore, our country was known as Melita. This name is of Greek derivation and means honey. Which product was and still is considered prestigious.

In Roman times, in particular, honey was practically on a par with gold.

During ‘Malta u lil hinn minnha’, the Director-General for Rural Development in Għammieri, Dr Mario Spiteri explained that when one suffered a sword injury, the wound would be coated with honey, as honey made good for lack of circulation.

These days honey, and likewise bees, are costly. One has to bear in mind that there is no pollination without bees, and practically nothing will grow. As any farmer will tell you.

Dr Spiteri explains that practically everything that grows on land is pollinated by bees.
