Saudi Arabia celebrates its 90th National Day , known locally as Al-Yaom-ul-Watany, on September 23 today to commemorate the marvelous efforts of King Abdul Aziz and his men to unify the Kingdom. A new year is added to history from the days of the Saudi homeland and a bright page added to a record full of achievements, goodness, and peace, and a new memory for the unification of this great country by the late King Abdul-Aziz bin Abdul Rahman.
This day marks September 23rd, 1932 when King Abdulaziz announced the unification of the country as a kingdom.
The Kingdom marks National Day with folk dances, songs, and traditional festivals. The roads and buildings are decorated with Saudi flags.
Wednesday was announced as a holiday – and Thursday for private-sector employees – and the air show will be the largest for National Day celebrations, with 60 military and civilian aircraft.
Saudi Arabia’s National Day prompts every single Saudi citizen to feel proud of their dear nation’s past and present accomplishments and of the comprehensive development being undertaken today in all fields and at all levels under a wise leadership that has been and is still, steering the country toward the safe harbor in the midst of a restive and crisis-riddled region.
