Saudi Arabia is preparing to break a Guinness world record by launching 900,000 fireworks simultaneously from 58 platforms in 13 provinces to mark the 88th Saudi National Day on Sept. 23.
The fireworks will form the green background of the Saudi flag, in front of which 300 drones will create a laser image of its white horizontal sword and the Shahada (the Muslim profession of faith). This will break another Guinness world record in forming the largest flag in the world.
The nation turned green on Saturday on the eve of the 88th Saudi National Day.
Green festoons and green Saudi national flags were seen everywhere. Billboards were decorated with the photos of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman, deputy premier and minister of defense.
A number of cultural and entertainment activities have been planned by various public and private sectors across the Kingdom.
The iconic suspension bridge, also known as the hanging bridge, at Wadi Laban in southwest of Riyadh is will offer a spectacular view of the city awash with green.
To celebrate the National Day, government bodies and authorities have joined forces to develop a comprehensive festive program, including activities and events to be held in all Saudi cities, provinces and regions.
