National Omani Day

Cultural Celebration

Join us ot celebrate the 48th National Omani Day on 22 November from 11.00-14.30 in TR7.

November is an extremely meaningful month for the Omani population. As a small Omani community in Belfast, we would like to take this opportunity to get together and share out our culture and celebrate the happiness of our country with our colleagues, friends, and staff at Queen's. In Oman, celebration is all about having people around, and the diversity that keeps the positive spirit around the atmosphere. As students, we are the young ambassador of our country, we would love to share our beautiful heritage to different culture and tell them what Oman is about, and who we are.

Omani National Day is celebrated on the 18th November. The Omani Government is celebrating the 48th National day this year. Two occasions are celebrated on the same day which are; the Independence Day and the birthday of the Sultan of Oman. National day events are celebrated in different ways in Oman such as; parades, fireworks, camel race, horse show, traditional folklore performance, Omani Heritage Music, festivals, songs and costumes. Omanis come together to celebrate their National Day which every citizen look forward for this big day to celebrate. Every person celebrates this day on their own way in recognition of the great achievements of Oman and its citizen since the Sultan took office in 1970. Usually, the streets of Oman, houses, malls, and care are all specially decorated with photo of the sultan and accessories with colours of the Omani flag.
