Saudi female students in Adelaide celebrate National Day with fervor

ADELAIDE: In the capital city of South Australia, Saudi students have chosen to spread the knowledge about their country with flowers and chocolate.
A group of female Saudi students decided to introduce their country the way they see it. Eighty-eight balloons representing the Kingdom’s National Day were distributed to children in the heart of Adelaide, along with flowers, chocolate and flyers about the history of Saudi Arabia.
Dr. Hesham Khadawardi, the Saudi cultural attaché in Australia, said: “Saudi women are indispensable contributors to national development.
 “They proudly announce their role supporting and serving the success and advancement of their country. The energy of Saudi contemporary advancement by necessity attracts the synergy of all young ambitious Saudis, both women and men.”
Following the great relationship between the two countries, the UAE cultural attaché in Canberra contributed to support this celebration, UAE students participated in the celebrations and the Emirate flag was held up along with the Saudi flag, representing the long and strong bonds between the two nations.
Earlier this week, the Saudi Arabian Embassy in London was lit up in green to mark the National Day, and launched a spectacular and dazzling display of fireworks that decorated the London skies.
This coincided with the Saudi Entertainment Authority breaking a Guinness world record by launching 900,000 fireworks simultaneously from 58 platforms in 13 provinces in the Kingdom.
The fireworks and the drones outlined the Kingdom’s flag in the sky, along with the Vision 2030 logo and depicted a figure that symbolized the soldiers of the armed forces at the southern border.
The ceremony was attended by a number of UK officials, members of the British House of Lords and House of Commons, and members of the Arab and foreign diplomatic corps accredited in Britain.
