Flags to form 'UAE' at Kite Beach today
Thousands of flags will be arranged to create the letters 'UAE' at the Kite Beach in Jumeirah, Dubai, today.
Dubai - Brand Dubai will celebrate UAE Flag Day by hoisting thousands of flags at the Kite Beach in Jumeirah.
In response to the call of His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to celebrate the UAE Flag Day today, Brand Dubai is organising an innovative initiative called 'Flags Garden' to mark the national occasion.
A subsidiary of the Government of Dubai Media Office, Brand Dubai will celebrate UAE Flag Day by hoisting thousands of flags at the Kite Beach in Jumeirah.
The flags will be arranged to create the shapes of the letters in the country's acronym 'UAE'. Organised for the second year in a row, Flags Garden will highlight the themes of national pride, solidarity and unity.
Commenting on the event, Director-General of the Government of Dubai Media Office Mona Al Marri said: "The Flag Garden initiative, which responds to the call of Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid to hoist the nation's flag on the UAE Flag Day, is an opportunity for us to reaffirm our allegiance, demonstrate our nation's unity and honour our commitment to the country's growth."
Al Marri said the initiative complements three key national celebrations, which will see UAE flags hoisted on top of federal and local government buildings at the same time on the UAE Flag Day (today) at 12 noon; on UAE Martyrs Day on November 30 and on the 44th UAE National Day on December 2.
Brand Dubai has invited people to take photos of the Flags Garden and post them on its Instagram account @BrandDubai using the hashtag #BrandDubai.
The flags will remain hoisted until mid-December 2015.
