Happy Kuwait National Day!

Happy Kuwait National Day

Mohammad Al-Refaei did a jump celebrating Kuwait National Day and Liberation Day at Skydive Empuriabrava in Spain with a 250 sq-ft flag.

Kuwait National Day is celebrated on the anniversary of the date Amir Sheikh Abdallah Al Salem ascended the throne in 1950; he was so instrumental in the development of modern-day Kuwait that the National Day is celebrated on this day instead of an independence day. Liberation Day is February 26, and commemorates the withdrawal of Iraq.

He also made it to the front page of the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Watan: Video: Kuwaiti parachutist Mohammed Al-Refaei jumped in Spain to celebrate the holidays.

Well done, Mohammad, and happy Kuwait Day!

Edited to correct Liberation Day date – it’s February 26, not January. And Mohammad reports that the super catchy song is called “Proud To Be Kuwaiti” and is one of the National Day songs.
