September will always be a month of great importance for the Arabian Kingdom people as it would to any country because of the arrival of its National Day. The day is celebrated to remember renaming its name from the Kingdom of Nejd and Hejaz to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This happened in 1932 when the Kingdom was named before the family of King Abdul Aziz. This day was acknowledged to be a national holiday back in 2005, and King Fahad announced it to be the public holiday.
On this day, the roads and the squares are decorated with the Saudi flags. People wear white and green dresses, imitating the Arabian flag, which is filled with green color and has writings of white shades on it. The whole country is decorated with the same colors. This year marks the 90th National Day of the Arabian Kingdom.
