Saudi Arabia to mark Flag Day annually on March 11: Royal Order

March 11 of each year has become a flag day in Saudi Arabia after King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud issued a royal order to that effect.


A royal decree, published by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), stated that the basis for the designation of Flag Day was the value of the national flag since its founding in 1727 when the state was founded.


The flag symbolizes the testimony of monotheism in the middle of it, the message of peace and Islam on which this blessed country was based. The sword symbolizes strength, dignity, the height of wisdom, and status.


For nearly three centuries, this flag was a witness to the campaigns to unite the country waged by the Saudi state, and the citizens of this country took from it a banner of glory that would not be set back, out of belief in the great importance of the flag as a manifestation of the state, its strength and sovereignty, and a symbol of cohesion, coalition, and national unity.


Referring to the reason for choosing the eleventh of March as a day for the flag, the royal order clarified that March 11, 1937, was the day the late King Abdulaziz Al Saud approved the flag in the form that we see today.
