Patriotism On Display On Liberation Anniversary
Category: Kuwait Local News

With a powerful mixture of proud patriotism and elated fanfare, and despite the numerous security, economic and social challenges in the region, thousands of Kuwaitis are set to celebrate their country’s 55th National and 25th Anniversary of Liberation on Thursday and Friday.

This year’s celebrations also mark the 10th anniversary of the Emir’s accession to power. Shaikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah is the first Kuwaiti Emir, since 1965, to be sworn in by the parliament.

Another milestone of the celebrations this time is the selection of Kuwait City as the capital of Islamic culture for 2016. The streets in the capital as well as in the other cities have been adorned with flags, flowers, and green, white, red and black lights, reflecting the colours of the Kuwaiti flag.

In line with the annual tradition, military shows are marked by the high-profile participation of land, air, and marine troops from the military, the Interior Ministry, and the Kuwait National Guard (KNG). A parade showcasing armoured vehicles, tanks, and other machinery takes place during the event.

Colours of the national flag were sprayed in the sky during a fly-past at an air show. The military and security units’ performances reflect the spirit of efficiency and readiness in defending the homeland under all circumstances.

The Sabah Al Ahmad cultural village was decorated with the lights representing the colours of the Kuwaiti flag. The village where several events and festivities are staged will remain open to the public until March 15.

The Kuwait Towers, the iconic symbol of the country and the most visited place in Kuwait, will be re-opened after being closed for five years due to maintenance work.
