In a move aiming to embody the meaning of national cohesion and the depth of national loyalty, the General Entertainment Authority (GEA), under the direction of His Excellency Turki bin Abdulmohsen Al Al-Sheikh, Chairman of the Board of Directors, launched a number of initiatives and events in various regions of the Kingdom during the celebration of the 90th National Day, from September 22-26. This celebration is implemented through a plan that takes into account the conditions that the world is going through today; COVID-19 pandemic .
The GEA initiatives included holding the largest air show on the date of the National Day. In this show, about 60 military and civilian aircrafts will participate, in cooperation with the Civil Aviation Authority and the Saudi Royal Air Force. They will make demonstrations in Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam. These will be live broadcasted on Saudi Channel One at 4 pm. Fireworks will be live broadcasted on the same channel at 9 pm.
In a move that enhances the meanings of pride in the official “Saudi” national anthem, and develops a sense of creativity, GEA has launched an initiative through the hashtag (#nanshod lel wata (#Sing_National_Anthem). Through this hashtag, the participant will post a short video clip in which he/she sings the national anthem. All these contributions and submissions will be combined to produce a complete and comprehensive artistic work that embodies the collective national joy.
GEA took into consideration the participation of young people and plastic artists in the celebration of the National Day. It had launched a “National Day” coloring guide, through which it would be possible to color the precious attractions of our country with its various administrative provinces.
Photographers have their share in National Days. GEA has launched a unique initiative under the title “Share a photo of the Country”. This initiative allows all of the Kingdom’s residents to show their creativity in taking photos of the most beautiful attractions of the Kingdom of Good and Giving (Saudi Arabia).
