The '''Falkland Islands''' (Spanish: ''Islas Malvinas'') are an archipelago in the South Atlantic Ocean, located 300&nbsp;miles (483&nbsp;km) from the coast of Argentina, 671&nbsp;miles (1,080&nbsp;km) west of the Shag Rocks (South Georgia), and 584&nbsp;miles (940&nbsp;km) north of Antarctica (Elephant Island). They consist of two main islands, East Falkland and West Falkland, together with 776 smaller islands. Stanley, on East Falkland, is the capital city. The islands are a self-governing Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom, but have been the subject of a claim to sovereignty by Argentina since the British invasion of 1833.
