Oman all set to celebrate 49th National Day

  • Uncategorized

Oman is all geared up to celebrate its 49th National Day, with people in a festive mood as they look forward to honouring the development the country has seen under the visionary leadership of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said.

Celebrated on November 18 every year soon after His Majesty ascended the throne in 1970, Oman’s National Day is a time for joy, sharing and togetherness, as citizens and expats together reflect on the progress that the country has seen during his stable and steady rule.

It’s hard to miss the build-up that follows the announcement and in the days leading to the arrival of National Day.

In the days before and after National Day, streets across Muscat and the rest of Oman are festooned with decorations and lighting in the colours of Oman’s red, white and green flag, while the Royal Oman Police relaxes its rules regarding the adorning of vehicles, allowing people to mark this occasion with Omani flags and symbols.

To honour what is one of the most important days in Oman’s history, National Day is marked by a series of shows including fireworks around the country. Two of these locations this year – Al Seeb near Al Khoudh Dam, and near the Amerat Dam – are in Muscat, while a third will be held at Sahel Ittin in Salalah, the capital of the Dhofar Governorate. The fireworks will begin at 8 pm on 18 November.

Official from the Supreme Committee for National Day Celebrations said,

“The streets have been decorated since Friday, 15 November 2019 in Muscat Governorate, from Azaiba intersection to Sidab. This year, the lighting installations took the shapes of musical instruments and notes, as well as depictions of flowers. We have also undertaken the installation of the Sultanate’s flags from Bait Al Al Barakah roundabout to Al Bustan Palace roundabout. All municipalities of the Sultanate of Oman have installed flags and decorations on streets and buildings.”
