Lingwa Tas-Sinjali Maltija or Maltese Sign Language (LSM) is the language of the Maltese Deaf Community.
By the way, the Maltese Parliament approved the Bill declaring that the Maltese Sign Language is to be considered an official language of Malta!
“16 March 2016, the Maltese Parliament approved the Bill declaring that the Maltese Sign Language is to be considered an official language of Malta. We at EUD are very pleased to have supported the National Association of the Deaf in Malta for years in their work to reach this great milestone” – http://www.eud.eu/news/maltese-sign-language-recognised-maltese-parliament/
The Maltese alphabet is based on the Latin alphabet with the addition of some letters with diacritic marks and digraphs:
