Brief info about Naxxar Parish & Victory Day:
Naxxar is one of the first parishes in Malta. It may have already been a parish in 1400.

The existing church was built in 1628. It is thought to have been designed by Tumas Dingli but others think it's the works of Vitor Cassar, son of Ġlormu. Its sides, the facade and the belfry towers were built in early 20th Century.

The wood statue of "Il-Bambina" was brought from Rome at the beginning of the 20th Century. The canopy and crown over the statue were made in 1923.

There are two Band Clubs in Naxxar: The Ġħaqda Mużikali Vittorja, Est 1916 and the Peace Band Club. Both are very active in the Parish.
Victory Day, September 8, is a national holiday in Malta. It is locally known as "il-Vitorja" (the Victory) and "il-Bambina" (Baby Mary), commemorating three events:

1. The birth the Virgin Mary
2. The victory of the Great Siege by the Knights of St. John against the Turks of 1565.
3. Italy surrendered during World War II in 1943 and turned against its former German ally.
