NewsSaudi Flag Day 2024 - يوم العلم السعودي

Saudi Arabia eagerly awaits the arrival of its second Flag Day(يوم العلم السعودي) on March 11, 2024, a public holiday established in 2023 to commemorate King Abdulaziz Al Saud’s official adoption of the national flag in 1937.

While Saudi National Day and Founding Day have long been celebrated, Flag Day represents a relatively new tradition. It allows Saudis to proudly display their national identity and contemplate the symbolism behind their flag.

The nation prepares to immerse itself in a sea of green and white as buildings are adorned with flags, and citizens are encouraged to participate in parades and festivities. Special events, educational programs, and media coverage dedicated to the flag’s history and significance are expected to abound.

The Saudi flag holds deep significance, with its green symbolizing Islam, the country’s predominant religion. The white sword and inscription represent the historical struggle to unite the region under the House of Saud.

This year’s Flag Day holds particular significance as only the second time it will be celebrated. It presents an invaluable opportunity for Saudi Arabia to deepen the connection between its people and their national emblem, fostering a sense of unity and pride.
