According to Barraclough and Crampton 1981 [bcr81], p. 129:
White and red have always been used as the colours of Malta (...) This island had already transformed its blue ensign badge into a flag for local use in 1947, and this flag, without the blue background to the George Cross, continued in use on independence.

The pre-George Cross  flag of Malta [was simply white-red].
