The United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) Flag Day is a national occasion where people of the U.A.E. remember the efforts of the founders of their State, Sheikh Zayed and Sheikh Rashid, and their brothers who sacrificed everything for the sake of their nation. It is a day when the national spirit is renewed and an occasion to reflect on the achievements of the era of President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
The U.A.E. flag day is also a celebration of the U.A.E. values like justice, peace, tolerance, power, and moderation. All Emiratis live a decent life and enjoy security and stability. This comes in continuation of the legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
U.A.E. Flag Day falls on November 3, in conjunction with the anniversary of President His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan's assumption of office as the country's leader. This year the celebration is even more significant given that the U.A.E. is celebrating 50 years.
The U.A.E. flag was raised for the first time by Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan to mark the country's union on December 2, 1971.
The U.A.E. beautiful flag consists of four colors: green, white, black, and red, representing the unity of Arabs.
The flag was designed by a talented young Emirati named Abdullah Mohammad Al Maainah. Happy Flag Day, everyone!
