Yesterday, November 3rd, 2019, the UAE celebrated the Flag Day on its 6th edition.

The United Arab Emirates Flag Day is a national occasion in which the people of the United Arab Emirates remember the efforts of the founders of their State, Sheikh Zayed and Sheikh Rashid and their brothers who sacrificed everything for the good of their Nation; it also marks the anniversary of the President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, when he became the president of the UAE in 2004.

On this day, Emiratis across the UAE sing the country’s national Anthem and host the flag atop their buildings and at their backyards.
Made up of red, green, white and black rectangles, the colors of the flag represent courage, honesty, love and hope. It was designed by Abdullah Al Maainah in 1971 after he saw an advertisement for a flag-designing competition in Al Ittihad newspaper.
