Malmö Municipality is a municipality in Scania, the southernmost Swedish province.
When the first Swedish local government acts were implemented in 1863, the Old City of Malmö was made one of the country's 88 city municipalities and the first city council was elected. The municipal territory has been merged through mergers in 1911, 1915, 1931, 1935, 1952, 1967 and finally in 1971.
In 1971, the city was also converted into a municipality of unitary type, like all others in Sweden. Malmö Municipality, however, styles itself City of Malmö in all cases when it is legally possible.
