Speciality

Invincibility
Despite long sieges it seemed that there was nothing that could destroy the Rock or its people. This history has inspired the simile "solid as the Rock of Gibraltar", which is used to describe a person or situation that cannot be overcome and does not fail. The motto of the Royal Gibraltar Regiment and even Gibraltar itself, Nulli Expugnabilis Hosti (Latin for "No Enemy Shall Expel Us"), reflects this invincibility. For this reason, an illustration of the Rock of Gibraltar is the corporate logo of Prudential Financial[6]. The company's slogans have also referenced the formation.
