The national flag of Qatar has a great prominence, especially during patriotic celebrations. The opening ceremony of Qatar National Day begins every year with the raising of the flag. Many commercial buildings in Doha are adorned with giant national flags one or two weeks before National Day, and the flag is also very evident as a motif in the ‘branding’ or decoration of cars with companies like Shalan Advertising in Doha able to ‘brand’ your car in accordance with the above regulations.
Showing disrespect to the Qatar national flag by any means will attract a jail term of six months and a fine of QR 100, 000.
Many popular shops in Qatar sell the Qatari flag, and you’ll probably find one for sale at your local grocery store. However, if you want customized, top quality giant flags or accessories, get in touch with Doha based companies that sell online, such as Look or the Krom Group.

It seems that everyone likes to play along in this festive season by purchasing new clothes to look their best and most patriotic! Designers are working around the clock to deliver clothes ahead of Qatar National Day, and the suppliers of T-shirts, caps, wristbands, and mufflers are having a busy time to meet the demand of the customers by offering them customized designs. Again, the Qatar flag is the main component in the designs, with maroon and white being the dominant colors used. Caps and wristbands have become very popular in the last couple of years because of their relatively low price.
Souq Waqif is a perfect place to meet your all needs – from boys’ long kurta to girls’ fork, to caps and wristbands. The Qatar Shopping Complex in Al Markhiya, various malls, and Darb Al Saai itself all sell a huge variety of items from pillow,s to throws, to clothing, with something for everyone!
So enjoy the parade, the afternoon shows, and the fireworks display, wear your national colors with pride and, above all, have fun and stay safe!
