British Territorial Waters, Gibraltar.
Someone is making a petty political statement on this map by removing Gibraltar's Territorial Waters, recognised by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) in order to support an invalid and unjustified claim by Spain.
British waters can legally extend to the full 12nm as per UNCLOS, but in practice only 3nm is officially British.
Spain's lack of recognition of British Gibraltar Territorial waters is utterly irrelevant and has no basis in logic or legality.
Please correct this, this should be a site to provide accurate mapping and not a platform for people to further state propaganda.
