Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz stressed on Friday that Saudi Arabia’s National Day is a “reflection in the pride in our nation’s glories.”


This is a pride in its standing and unity among nations, he added.


In a tweet, he appealed to “God Almighty to preserve the nation and maintain its security and stability.”


Friday marks Saudi Arabia’s 92nd National Day that was adopted by King Salman on January 27 earlier this year.


He set February 22 as Founding Day, which marks the day when the Saudi state was formed by Imam Mohammed bin Saud in 1727. Imam Mohammed named Diriyah as its capital.


National Day marks the date when the country was unified by King Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman. He named it the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, with Riyadh as its capital, on September 23, 1932.
