National Day symbolises the ideals and hopes of the Kingdom. A sentiment of pride for the country can be felt during the day and being grateful for everything that the country has achieved. During the day people who assisted in the Kingdom’s establishment are also honoured.

You can expect to see buildings and roads decorated with Saudi’s flags and fireworks during the evening. This day is declared a public holiday during which businesses and Government departments are closed in order to partake in the celebration and festivities.

It is common to see people wearing green on this day and participate in traditional dances and songs.  Open to the Public!
