Jordan celebrated its 70th Independence Day with Their Majesties King Abdullah and Queen Rania along with HRH Crown Prince Hussain. Apart from Their Majesties, other members of the Royal family and renounced military and civil officers joined the primary festivity. Entire Jordan seemed to gather gleefully at Raghadan Palace to be a part of the ceremonies.
Several events were organized on 25th May’16, to celebrate the Independence of Jordan from British mandate, which took place in 1946. During the official ceremony, a historical presentation was given. The presentation was skillful enough to portray the several historical phases; from the sovereignty of King Abdullah-I to Your Highness King Abdulla-II. The stories related to the Great Arab Revolt were also painted beautifully.
Apart from the emotional performances, aerobatics show by Air Force F-16 jets in Amman, several exhibitions, motorcades by local and civil society groups were successfully drawing the attention of the tourists. The king also awarded several national institutions and individuals for their achievements. People shared sweets with each other and distributed flags for free, throughout the country. The air of the entire country was filled with their national songs and the essence of sovereignty.
The Independence Day was not only celebrated conventionally, but this year some new spices got sprinkled also, when The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts (RACA) made the largest mosaic painting of cakes in the world and created a Guinness World record. The 187 square-metre cake was prepared by 150 instructors, employees and students.
At the end of the day, it can be said that the Independence Day ended in a sweet note.
