The Falkland Islands Gazette was first published in its current style on 1 January 1891, the text of the first notice in that publication is reproduced below:

No. 1. 31st December 1890

In consequence of the destruction of the Government Official Gazette Board on which it has been customary to publish both official and private Notices,

His Excellency the Governor has been pleased to authorize the issue of a Government Gazette by authority.

The Falkland Islands Gazette was printed by the Government Printer until 2006 when responsibility for publication was passed to the Attorney General.

The Falkland Islands crest replaced the United Kingdom crest on publications with effect from 1 January 2024.
