    Gibraltar Introduction - 2005
    https://allcountries.org/wfb2005/gibraltar/gibraltar_introduction.html
    SOURCE: 2005 CIA WORLD FACTBOOK

      Background:
      Strategically important, Gibraltar was ceded to Great Britain by Spain in the 1713 Treaty of Utrecht; the British garrison was formally declared a colony in 1830. In referendums held in 1967 and 2002, Gibraltarians ignored Spanish pressure and voted overwhelmingly to remain a British dependency.
