Bahrain’s 49th National Day in photos

Commonly referred to as the “Pearl of the Gulf,” Bahrain commemorated over 6,000 years of history.

Bahrain usually celebrates the occasion with an array of cultural events that includes art, music and historical heritage. This is in addition to the adornment of red and white colors on buildings, numerous flags in the streets and car parades.

Bahrain’s 49th National Day celebrations began with a dazzling display of fireworks that lit up the skies over the Kingdom. Although the past year has been a whirlwind, the people of Bahrain were still as enthusiastic as ever.

The residents’ patriotic fervor was on full display with national flags flying high across several locations in the Kingdom. Roads, trees and buildings were beautifully decorated with hues of red and white. Landmark sites were also lit up to mark the occasion.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy National Day!
