The Gibraltar Bahá'í Community has been established since 1991 and has now its own Local Spiritual Assembly governing the local community consisting of Bahá'ís from different racial and religious backgrounds such as English, Gibraltarian, Spanish, Indian, Persian, Christian, Muslim, Hindu and Zoroastrian.

The local Bahá'í Community is gradually becoming better known and recognised: in November 1995 the community commemorated UN's 50th Anniversary with the guest speaker Mr Peter Isola O.B.E..

In January 1996 a Bahá'í delegation presented the World Peace Statement to the Chief Minister, Mr Joe Bossano. A series of Poetry Evenings were organised by the Poet and Playwright, The Hon. Dominick Browne.

The Bahá'í International Community is accredited in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and with the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). The Community's offices in New York and Geneva and Bahai's in many lands regularly participate in conferences, congresses and seminars concerned with the socio-economic life of our planet.

Gibraltar would therefore always be represented as a Nation when local Bahá'ís participate in these international activities.

The Bahá'ís, in whatever locality, work together towards a sustainable social and economic development projects aimed at providing a high quality environment and a healthy economy for their communities around the world.
