February 25 is Kuwait’s National Day.

Abdullah III Al-Salim Al-Sabah’s reign was so central to the evolution of modern Kuwait that when he died in 1965, the date on which he had ascended the throne in 1950 (February 25) was designated National Day.

Abdullah was the 1st Emir of Kuwait. Also the House of Sabah is the ruling family of Kuwait.

Kuwait, officially the State of Kuwait, is a country in Western Asia. Situated in the northern edge of Eastern Arabia at the tip of the Persian Gulf, it shares borders with Iraq and Saudi Arabia.
