Beware of leaving your flag on the ground since it may lead you to prison

Celebrations might get exciting, but beware of leaving your flag on the ground since it may lead you to prison.

According to the Ministry of Culture and Knowledge Development, the UAE flag law states: "Any person who publicly drops, damages or in any way insults the Union flag, the flag of any member emirate in the Union on the flag of any other country as a result of disgust or contempt of the powers of the Union, the emirates or the relevant countries, shall be punished by prison for a period of no more than six months and a fine of no more than Dh1,000."
