Celebrating Qatar’s National Day

On December 6, 2016 the Embassy of the State of Qatar will be hosting an event celebrating Qatar’s National Day. National Day is a holiday we celebrate each year,  on the anniversary of December 18, 1878, when Sheikh Jasim bin Mohammed Al-Thani, the founder of the State of Qatar, succeeded his father, Sheikh Muhammad Bin Thani, as the ruler and led the country towards unity. This is an important day to us; it honors our identity and heritage, but also commemorates our principles and efforts to help create understanding between different cultures. This year we have the pleasure to celebrate it at the National Portrait Gallery’s Kogod Yard. We look forward to seeing many of you at the event.
