Saudi Arabia Marks Flag Day on Saturday

Saudi Arabia will mark Flag Day on Saturday for the first time in its history.

Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman issued a royal decree on March 1 designating March 11 every year as a special day to celebrate the national flag.

Emanating from the belief of the government of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz and the Crown Prince that the flag has great significance as a manifestation of the Saudi state, its strength, and sovereignty and is a symbol of cohesion, harmony, and national unity, a Royal Decree was issued on Sha’aban 09, 1444 AH corresponding to March 01, 2023, dedicating March 11 of every year to be a special day to commemorate the flag under the name “The Flag Day” because Dhul-Hijjah 27, 1355 AH, corresponding to March 11, 1937, was the day the Founder, the late King Abdulaziz, endorsed the flag in the form seen today fluttering with its great connotations that refer to monotheism, justice, strength, development, and prosperity.

The national flag of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been a symbol of strength, sovereignty, and national unity since the foundation of the Saudi state in 1727. For nearly three centuries, the flag has been a beacon, haven, banner, and testimony of the unification campaigns that the Saudi state has undergone.

The history of Saudi Arabia’s flag dates back to the banner of Imams of the first Saudi state, who founded the state and unified its territories.
