Saudi Arabia National Day 2023 – Today’s Doodle celebrates Saudi Arabia’s National Day. On this day in 1932, the nations of Najd and Hijaz united to officially become the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The capital of Riyadh hosts the most popular celebrations, but communities around the country celebrate in their own way. In Riyadh, airplanes soar over cities as people gather in the streets and wave the green and white national flag — just like the one in today’s Doodle.
Many spend the day at traditional folk festivals, while others take advantage of the abundant celebratory deals at malls. Families feast on meals like the national dish kabsa — a combination of golden brown chicken, pine nuts, raisins, and rice. At night, fireworks dance across the skyline of green-lit buildings and homes. This year’s National Day theme is “We Dream and Achieve,” inspired by the country’s rapid progress and bright prospects.
Happy National Day, Saudi Arabia!
