Muscat: Google Doodle celebrates Oman’s 53rd National Day with an Oman National flag animated on its homepage in Oman on November 18
When users click on the animated flag, it take them to website and a message saying: “Today’s Doodle celebrates Oman’s National Day and the freedom of the oldest independent state in the Arab world. On this day in 1650, Oman expelled the Portuguese forces from the country and its ports, ending nearly 150 years of colonization.
To kick off the holiday, students sing the national anthem of Oman, also called as-Salâm as-Solṭâni or نشيد السلام السلطاني. Pride for the country runs deep as people of all ages dance to the folk music that flows through the streets. Buildings, bridges, and cars are decked out in patriotic symbols and national colors as the Omani flag, like the one waving in today’s Doodle, flutters from every streetlight.
Family and friends often gather during the holidays, and there are a variety of festivities to suit everyone’s interests — from camel races to marine festivals, to equestrian shows. Whether people prefer to celebrate their nation’s culture or simply enjoy spending time with loved ones, there’s an engaging activity for everyone.
Happy National Day, Oman!
