San Ġorġ Preca tweieled fi 12 ta’ Frar 1880 u studja u daħal sacerdot. San Ġorġ beda l-MUSEUM gewwa Malta. Iżda minn x’ hiexk ien jiddejjaq ? U minn x’ hiex għadda San Ġorġ? Min kien San Ġorġ Preca? X’ konnessjoni ghandu mall-Mlied? U llum il-ġurnata kif infakru l-festa tiegħu?
The Sandrac Gum Tree (Siġra tal-Għargħar) is the national tree of the Maltese Islands. In Europe it is only found on the Islands and a small part of Spain but is also found in North African. A few years ago this tree was in a great risk of becoming extinct but propagation projects helped in producing a larger population on the Maltese Islands. It is a very versatile tree able to survive in remote places.
