A 31-gun salute in the federal capital and 21-gun salute in the provincial capitals welcomed the day. Special prayers were also offered in mosques after morning prayers for the country's progress and prosperity. After a flag-raising ceremony, Pakistan's national anthem was played and Pakistani students took stage to sing traditional songs in their native dress.
