Significance of Kuwait National and Liberation Day to Kuwait Vision 2035


Every year, the State of Kuwait bursts into celebrations on February 25th and 26th, marking its National and Liberation Day, respectively. These days are not just public holidays; they are a profound expression of our national identity and a reflection on the journey of our nation's resilience and independence.

National Day, celebrated on February 25th, commemorates the creation of Kuwait as a nation in 1961. Liberation Day, on the other hand, marks the end of the Gulf War and the liberation of Kuwait from Iraqi occupation on February 26th, 1991. Together, they symbolize the spirit of Kuwaiti sovereignty and the triumph of peace and freedom over adversity.

Reflection on History and Celebrating Freedom

The significance of these days runs deep in the heart of every Kuwaiti. They are a time to honor the past and celebrate the triumphs of our forebears who laid down the foundations for a free and prosperous Kuwait. Streets are adorned with the national colors of black, green, white, and red, embodying the pride and unity of the Kuwaiti people.
