Gibraltar is a peninsula in southern Spain, at the eastern end of the strait bearing its name. This very strategic strait links the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea.

Long disputed between the Spaniards and the Arabs, Gibraltar was finally conquered by the English in 1704. Since 1886, stamps are issued as a British colony. Prior to that date, British stamps were used.

The first series of stamps of 1886 was stamps of Bermuda overloaded "Gibraltar". Then, and until today, specific stamps have been issued by this colony.

The first souvenir sheet issued in 1974 celebrates the centenary of the birth of Sir Winston Churchill.
