From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Gibraltar uses Standard Time or Central European Time (UTC+01:00) and daylight saving time or Central European Summer Time (UTC+02:00).[1][2]

Prior to 1982[edit]

Until 1982, Gibraltar used GMT+1 all year round. This put it in neighbouring Spain's time zone for 5 months and in the UK's zone for the 7 months of British Summer Time. In 1982, Gibraltar changed to use Central European Time all year round, putting it wholly in tune with Spain.[3]

IANA time zone database[edit]

The IANA time zone database contains one time zone for Gibraltar in the file zone.tab, named Europe/Gibraltar.

This refers to the area having the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code "GI".
