(Riyadh) – In celebration of the country’s 87th National Day on Saturday all roads in the capital and other important cities have been covered with green flags and posters of King Salman and Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman, deputy premier and minister of defense.

Many citizens have even got their cars painted green to celebrate the day.

Celebrations, featuring wide variety of programs and activities include patriotic events, folk arts and dances, processions and fireworks, have been held throughout the Kingdom with the start of the celebrations since Thursday.

On the occasion of the National Day, Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, emirs of various provinces, ministers and high-ranking civilian and military officials greeted the people and reminded them of the endeavors made by the Kingdom’s founder late King Abdul Aziz in unifying the Kingdom, as well as the unprecedented growth and massive developments witnessed in the Kingdom during the period of his successors.

In his statement, the Crown Prince commended the Kingdom’s growth and prosperity under the great leadership of King Salman, saying: “what our country is witnessing today is due to the continuation by King Salman of what has been done by the former kings of this country of giving, goodness and development as well as efforts to serve Islam and support Muslims. On this occasion of recalling the unification of this great nation, we emphasize the Kingdom’s effective and influential status and role on the regional and international arenas, with its commitment to work for the achievement of international peace and security and its pursuit for the good of all humanity,” he said.
