Saudi flag makes underwater journey for National Day

JEDDAH: A group of divers in Saudi Arabia’s Jazan province marked the Kingdom’s founding with an undersea tribute to the national symbol on Monday.
They carried the Saudi flag in the Red Sea at a depth of 88 feet — the Kingdom was founded eighty-eight years ago by King Abdulaziz.
The divers began their underwater commemoration on the tourist side of Jazan and headed to a site near the island of Ahbar.
