What is Saudi Flag Day?
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.
