The National Day, corresponding to the eighteenth of December of each year, comes to renew in the hearts of citizens the most beautiful meanings, through which they renew the covenant to serve the dear country, work for its survival in the ranks of developed countries, and promote the values of loyalty and loyalty to the wise leadership, and follow the path of the founder (May God have mercy on him).
These meanings and values are crystallized in various manifestations in every quarter of the dear country. Thus, the national values are reflected not only in their behavior in serving the country in all aspects of life. They are evident in the general appearance of the state, where Qataris, especially children, these days, are clothed in everything that shows this love for the homeland and loyalty for the good leadership.
Darb Al Saai is considered as the most important place in which these patriotic feelings appear, as everyone visits it and they are keen to wear distinctive costumes on this occasion. They are also keen on the appearance of their children in the most beautiful suit that expresses the connection to the homeland, especially the clothes inspired by the colors of the white and burgundy national flag, as well as wearing well-known heritage clothes such as the daqla, the pickpocket dress and traditional dresses, and many young people prefer to wear clothes that mimic what Hama wears. The homeland is in the army and policemen, and this is what you find in the market located in Darb Al Saai, which includes the activities of the National Day, which is held under the slogan “Our Unity is the Source of Our Strength”, as Darb Al Saai provides shops selling National Day clothes keeping pace with the events.
The Designer / Bahia Al-Sayed says that the country’s national day is an opportunity to highlight the Qatari identity and reflect the love of the country, whether in behavior or fashion, as everyone, men and women, is keen to wear traditional clothes, and women wear especially the dress of pickpockets, designed in burgundy and white colors, in connection with the color of support.
