With the UAE Flag Day right around the corner (it's next week!) residents across the seven emirates are preparing for holidays outside the city, go out and about. But what does the day really mean? This new video posted by UAE PD on YouTube answers that question.

The video highlights important events that led to the formation of the UAE such as the the founding of the union in the Union House as well as brief snippets of the late Shaikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, father of the President, His Highness Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
Flag Day takes place on the 3rd of November.
