Qatar celebrated its National Day on December 18 last and Qatar Today  is proud to provide some of the prominent images of the day.

Great excitement on the corniche on National Day
patrons who made the trip to the corniche to witness the National Day celebrations were delighted to see the Emir HH Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani take off on foot through the crowd between the Ministry of Interior’s headquarters and Al Bida Park shaking hands with many and embracing children.
As has happened in previous years, a huge crowd started assembling from the very early morning – all trying to gain a view of the proceedings – but they must have been shocked to see the Emir mingling and greeting.
The formal celebrations began with the singing of the national anthem and recitation of verses from the Holy Quran, before the Emir took salute as contingents from the security forces marched by.
Powder fireworks followed the parade while many other activities were on display to mark the occasion. Two different kinds of Qatari traditional boats were showcased at the Dhow exhibition while a classic car exhibition and palm trees illuminations added to the spectacle.
