Qatar National Day celebrations will kick off on December 9, 2017 at Darb Al Saai under the theme of ‘Promise of Prosperity and Glory’, Qatar’s Minister of Culture and Sports, and head of the National Day Organizing Committee, HE Salah bin Ghanem Al Ali announced yesterday during a press conference at the Qatar National Theater.

“This year’s celebrations come as Qatar is under siege imposed by some countries, which makes this year’s celebrations more unique,” he stated. “Qataris proved that they are united and standing behind their Emir HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, and this unity is the real vision behind the Qatar National Day celebrations.”

The focus of each Qatar National Day is to bring together the country’s people in unity, loyalty, and pride of national identity, and to enhance bonds between residents and citizens of Qatar. Al Ali also urged public participation in the creation of new ideas and ways to advance the vision of Qatar National Day and celebrate Qatari heritage and tradition.

The theme of this year’s celebrations was inspired by a quote from HH The Emir, with a verse of a poem from Qatar’s Founder Sheikh Jassim bin Mohammed bin Thani used to further bolster the sense of unity and national pride among the people of Qatar.
