About Bormla:

Cospicua (Bormla) has a population of around 6500. It is the largest city of the three Cottonera Cities surrounded by fortifications. Cospicua originally was a fishing village, its importance increased with the arrival of the Knights of St John. When the knights moved to Valletta,  they constructed docks at the Port of Cospicua and it became a leading docking centre for ship repair especially during the Second World War. Before the Second World War, in Cospicua St. George's band was one of the most popular bands in Malta and once a year there was a big carnival parade. The 30's were the golden years for the oarsmen of Cospicua. They have won the 8th September regatta several times. Football was also at its best. St. George's F.C. was a great team and was followed by many supporters.
