Saudi Arabia’s National Day has been declared a public and commercial sector holiday

On September 23, the Kingdom will mark its 91st anniversary of establishment.

Saudi Arabians will have a long weekend next week as the kingdom prepares to commemorate its National Day.

On the occasion of National Day in 2021, Saad Al Hammad, spokesman for the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development (MHRSD), declared on Twitter that the public and private sectors will be closed on September 23, 2021.

Every year on September 23, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia commemorates its establishment.

MHRSD’s judgement is based on Article 24 of the Labor Law’s Executive Regulations, as well as paragraph B of Article 127 and Article 128 of the Human Resources Executive Regulations.

The new identity for the 91st National Day was launched by Turki Al Sheikh, head of the Board of Directors of the General Entertainment Authority (GEA), with the title “Heya Lana Dar,” which means “Saudi is Our Home.”

All government and private sectors inside and beyond the Kingdom will join in the celebrations.

According to Saudi Gazette, the 91st National Day’s identity was created to reflect the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 with spectacular colors and messaging, with templates available online.

SAUDIA began in 1945 with a single twin-engine DC-3 (Dakota) HZ-AAX, a gift from US President Franklin D. Roosevelt to King Abdul Aziz. This was followed a few months later by the purchase of two more DC-3s, which formed the basis of what would become one of the world’s major airlines a few years later.

SAUDIA now boasts 149 aircraft, including the latest and most modern wide-body jets on the market: the Boeing 787-9, the Boeing 777-268L, the Boeing 777-300ER, the Airbus A320-200, the Airbus A321, and the Airbus A330-300.

It is our pleasure to list the most important historical highlights of SAUDIA since its establishment until becoming one of the best airlines in the world.
