This year, the National Day celebrations are taking place under the motto 'As long as it was proven by our deeds ... Qatar remains free.'

The motto blends a verse taken from one of the poems by Qatar’s Founder Sheikh Jassim bin Mohamed bin Thani with a phrase taken from the national anthem. Darb Al Saai means 'Route of the Messenger' used by the delegates whom the country’s founder would entrust to deliver his directives. They were known for their astonishing traits. They were chosen to play such a sensitive role in difficult times.

Nine gates have been allocated for entry into Darb Al Saai. Signs are also provided to guide the public. Twelve signs have been placed at various locations in Darb Al Saai to provide all comforts to visitors.
