Kuwait's celebration of its 57th National Day coincides this year with the 40th anniversary of the country's national anthem, an occasion that expresses Kuwaitis' belonging, loyalty and pride of their homeland.

The State of Kuwait actually gained independence from Britain on June 19, 1961 by virtue of a treaty signed by Sheikh Abdullah Al-Salem Al-Sabah, the 11th ruler of the country, and Sir George H. Middleton. The treaty ended Kuwait's status as a British protectorate under the pact signed by Sheikh Mubarak Al-Sabah and Britain on January 23, 1899, to protect the country from external threats.

The date of celebrating the Independence Day was shifted on May 18, 1964, to February 25 to coincide with the date of the coronation of Sheikh Abdullah Al-Salem Al-Sabah in commemoration of his role in building Kuwait as an independent, fully sovereign, democratic and modern country.

Kuwait Liberation Day
- Iraqi President Sadam Hussein led an invasion on August 2, 1990, that shut down the entire country of Kuwait
- The US Army led an operation called Desert Storm with the participation of several allied countries that began on January 17, 1991.
- This operation led to the end of the invasion and the end of the Sadam Hussein's regime as a later consequence.
- With this entire US movement in the Middle East was shocked subsequently with a series of independent popular movements due to the huge lack of the balance created by the Hussein's dethroning.
