Being arguably the most decorated holiday in this Arabian country, Kuwaitis celebrate their national day on the 25th of February every year to mark the ascension of Sheikh Abdullah Al-Salem Al-Sabah to the throne in the year 1950 who contributed significantly in aiding the country to achieve independence in 1961. Kuwait also celebrates its Liberation Day every 26th of February. This official public holiday is celebrated in honor of the country’s independence from Iraq after the first Gulf War.

In Kuwait, colors of the national flag and flag designs are decorated on streets, buildings, cars, and houses as an emblem of patriotism. It is also common for communities to organize public gatherings that accommodate food, refreshments, and entertainment. The patriotism of this nation is remarkable and should be made an example for others to follow.
