PHOTO: How celebrate Day of Flag in UAE

Why have so many UAE flags suddenly popped up around the city? Today is UAE Flag Day!

What is Flag Day? The day is a national campaign that was launched in 2013 by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice president of the UAE and ruler of Dubai, to honour the country’s past, present and future.

Flag Day is usually celebrated on November 3, the anniversary of HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan becoming the president of the UAE in 2004, but this year the Ministry of Cabinet and the Future announced it would take place on November 2.

While Flag Day isn’t a public holiday (no day off work – sorry guys), it’s still a very special occasion, and marks one month until the National Day public holiday. All government departments have been asked to raise the UAE flag at 11am, but you’ll be able to see flags all over the place – in shopping malls, on people’s houses and cars.

For the last two years, Dubai’s Kite Beach has transformed into a stunning Flag Garden for Flag Day, with thousands of flags in the sand – and this year is no different. Don’t worry if you can’t get down there to check them out today – they usually remain hoisted until mid-December.
