Celebrating the nation’s anniversary in independence.



Bruneians once again rose to the occasion to celebrate National Day, this year our 36th year of independence, on 23 February, 2020, with the theme ‘Accomplishing the National Vision’. The highlight of the celebration is of course the vibrant and colourful National Day parade where Bruneians and tourists alike converged upon Taman Haji Sir Muda Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien (An Independence Square) to enjoy the display of marching procession by various government agencies and private companies holding flags or traditional hardrah drums in the spirit of strength, national pride and unity, and other fantastic demonstrations and performances by local school children as well. This celebration, 161 teams and 26,296 participants marched in the parade while 7,336 participants performed on field in a wonderful mix of performances that showcased the efforts to build a nation as notable as Brunei Darussalam.

The event is made even more special graced by the presence of His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu‘izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam; His Royal Highness Prince Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah, the Crown Prince and Senior Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office; His Royal Highness Prince ‘Abdul Malik, His Royal Highness Prince ‘Abdul Wakeel, His Royal Highness Prince Mohamed Bolkiah, His Royal Highness Prince Haji Sufri Bolkiah, and His Royal Highness Prince Haji Jefri Bolkiah. Performers, parade participants and students lined along the shoulder of the main road to greet the royal family. Her Royal Highness Princess ‘Azemah Ni’matul Bolkiah, Her Royal Highness Princess Fadzilah Lubabul Bolkiah and Yang Amat Mulia Pengiran Muda Bahar were also involved in the march-past, leading the Brunei athletes of Southeast Asian (SEA) Games 2019.

The festivities continue all month long with special events and activities taking place throughout the nation.

Until next year, Happy National Day, Brunei!
