(MENAFN - Arab Times) As part of its annual tradition to celebrate the country's national days, Al-Ahmadi City has changed colors to twinkle at nighttime with green, white and red lights as an attribute to the Kuwaiti national flag



The city, located in the south and home of most of the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) workers, has not stopped dressing its trees and buildings with beautiful lights but has gone further to place around the city creative statutes and figures that tell the stories of Kuwait past and present. KOC's workers have outdone themselves this year by beautifying their city so that residents and visitors can enjoy the sight of Kuwaiti heritage artistically put together symbolized by tea pots, water wells or dhows, traditional sailing vessels



The national imageries on the streets of Al-Ahmadi do not only represent the past but also take its sightseers to modern day Kuwait by having statues of some of the main landmarks of the country such as Kuwait Towers and the National Assembly building. Al-Ahamdi does not only provide artful celebratory sceneries for its residents and visitors, who also come travelling from neighboring countries to enjoy the festivities, but also offer peace and order by having police officers spread out through the city to organize traffic and break up any disturbances



Head of KOC's media team Mohammad Al-Basri told KUNA that another part of the annual tradition of the City is to offer an award for best home decoration; the award encourages the public to get in the spirit of national holidays by sprucing up their home with national celebrations- themed decorations. Winners of this competition will be announced on February 25-26, he added. The first prize will be KD 4,000, the second KD 2,000 and the third KD 1,000. Al-Ahmadi is a suburb of Kuwait City founded in 1946 with the discovery of oil there. It is the Headquarters for the Kuwait Oil Company. Al-Ahmadi is famous for its oil refineries and peaceful green surroundings
