JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia is preparing to break a Guinness world record by launching 900,000 fireworks simultaneously from 58 platforms in 13 provinces to mark the 88th Saudi National Day on Sept. 23.
The fireworks will form the green background of the Saudi flag, in front of which 300 drones will create a laser image of its white horizontal sword and the Shahada (the Muslim profession of faith). This will break another Guinness world record in forming the largest flag in the world.
To celebrate the National Day, government bodies and authorities have joined forces to develop a comprehensive festive program, including activities and events to be held in all Saudi cities, provinces and regions.
They include Cirque du Soleil and the National Entertainment Day carnival in Riyadh, the Sky of Dreams show in Jeddah, the Light Garden event in Dammam, aerobatics and pyrotechnics shows in Khobar, the From Us to the Nation event in Tabouk, the release of hot-air balloons in Al-Ahsa, and many others.
Details of the National Day calendar can be found at the program’s portal, by following its Twitter account @ Roznamah_sa, or by downloading the app from
