MaltaPost has released a stamp in a joint issue with Israel. The subject of the stamp features “The Knights Hospitaller Halls” as a theme common to both countries. The two countries share a common connection as, at some stage, the Sovereign Military Order of St John of Jerusalem, Rhodes and Malta (SMOM) occupied both.
