Oman National Day, observed annually on November 18th, stands as a momentous public holiday, encapsulating the country’s history and triumphs. This significant date honors the late Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said’s birthday. His transformative reign from 1970 to 2020 sculpted Oman into a modern, prosperous nation.

Throughout Oman National Day, citizens engage in diverse cultural and military events, showcasing their patriotism, cultural heritage, and allegiance to the late Sultan. Streets, buildings, and cars proudly display the Omani flag’s vibrant colors—white, red, and green—along with images commemorating Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said.

The Glorious National Day Military Parade stands as the pinnacle of celebrations, showcasing different units of the Sultan of Oman’s Armed Forces. Musical performances, fireworks displays, concerts, camel races, horse shows, and various festivals across Oman delight its citizens, celebrating the Sultanate’s rich culture and traditions.

For Oman, National Day is a symbol of unity and pride, reflecting their heritage and honoring their visionary leaders.
