Flag of Malta

Malta is a southern European country in the Mediterranean Sea. The capital of Malta is Valletta.

James Bond creator, Ian Fleming, use to vacate on the islands.

In For Your Eyes Only M was the best man at the wedding of Colonel Timothy and Mrs. Havelock in 1925 in Malta.

In Casino Royale James Bond's ally Fawcett in the Caymans, who was tasked with forwarding the cable to Bond in Royale-les-Eaux, served in  World War II “as a Paymaster's clerk in a small naval intelligence organization in Malta”.  

Ian Fleming also alludes to Malta in his closure words of James Bond “The bitch is dead now.” which resounds the famous passage from the 1589 play The Jew of Malta by Christopher Marlowe.

FRIAR BARNARDINE: "Thou hast committed—"
BARABAS: "Fornication:  but that was in another country; And besides, the wench is dead."
―The Jew of Malta

Although Bond did not visit Malta in the films, The Spy Who Loved Me and For Your Eyes Only were filmed here. Also non-EON Bond films, Casino Royale and Never Say Never Again also were filmed here.
