UAE Flag Day: Complete guide to flag-raising etiquette
Dubai: The UAE Flag, a symbol of pride, loyalty and belonging for both Emiratis and expats, will be seen decorating the country in the run up to UAE Flag Day on November 3.
The annual occasion, which coincides with the anniversary of President His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s assumption of office as the leader of the country, is marked with the flag being hoisted across all government departments and buildings across the emirate.
All members of the UAE community, including private companies, are keen on participating in this joyous occasion. This also comes in response to a special call by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to launch a nationwide campaign to celebrate UAE Flag Day on November 3.
