The British have now been established on the Rock for 300 years. A ceremony is held twice a year where the Governor of Gibraltar wo dresses in his full uniform is handed the keys to Gibraltar, which is their emblem. This is done at sunset by the Port Sergeant. Lots of Gibraltarians turn out for this event. The people of Gibraltar known as Gibraltarians are happy to remain under British jurisdiction. In 1967 they actually had a vote and over 12,000 voted to stay under British rule and 44 voted to return to Spanish rule
