Saudi Arabia's King Salman has designated March 11 as the date to
celebrate National Flag Day, as a symbol of honour for the Kingdom's national
Saudi Flag Day is a day when all Saudi Arabians celebrate the
significant meaning of the Saudi flag. The day was chosen to commemorate the day
that the late King Abdulaziz Al Saud gave his approval for the flag to serve as
the Kingdom's symbol.
The value of the national flag extends throughout
the history of the Saudi state, since its founding in 1139 AH - 1727 AD, which
bears the Islamic declaration of faith in the middle, symbolizing the message of
peace, and the religion of Islam, on which this blessed state was based.
Saudi Arabia marked Flag Day on March 11. As of right now, Saudi Flag Day has
not been declared a public or private holiday. Unless the government announces
differently, employees are still expected to report to work.
