Here we will be paying tribute to all those persons who lived or were born in Zejtun and who through their contribution in the Zejtun and the Maltese society at large,  we can use them as idols of our identity.

Although we will be referring solely to those who were documented in past and recent historical research, by no means should we forget those from our past generations who humbly worked to help others within the Zejtun community or who have contributed towards what we consider as our heritage today.

The following is a short list portraying some of these persons.  The list will be updated in the near future.
