Britannia was actually the Latin name given to Great Britain in 43AD when it was occupied by the Romans. She was then personified and turned into a goddess who’s original bare breasted, spear wielding figure has appeared on coins from the 2nd Century until the modern day.
The patriotic British song "Rule, Britannia!" originated from a poem written by James Thomson of the same name and was set to music in 1740 by Thomas Arne. The song has always been strongly associated with the Royal Navy hence the association with the Falklands Liberation due to the important part they played in the conflict. Britannia is a particularly strong British national emblem and the words from the song “Britannia Rules the Waves” are particularly resonating in relation to the Falklands Liberation.
The long running dispute between Britain and Argentina over the ownership of the Falkland Islands was brought to a head on the March 19, 1982 when 50 Argentines landed on South Georgia Island and hoisted their flag. Under the order of Galtieri, President of Argentina, the invasion of the Falkland Islands was declared on 2nd April which triggered the start of the War.
