Government entities across Dubai and the UAE will officially accept the challenge of Gov Games 2019 by planting their team flag at a dedicated Flag Garden on the Kite Beach in Dubai. The contest, which offers prizes worth Dh1 million, was conceived by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council.
"Each invited team is urged to plant its white entity-branded flag in the garden before the final participation deadline by February 14. When the final flag has been planted, the garden will form the shape of the Gov Games logo," said organisers in a Press statement issued on Wednesday.
The Gov Games Flag Garden is a 31X37 metres space.
Ahead of its second edition in April, Gov Games organisers have invited the chiefs of various government departments to form a team of five to seven employees best suited to ace the mental and physical challenges posed by a gruelling obstacle course on the Kite Beach from April 3-6.
"Gov Games was initiated to challenge government employees in the UAE and around the world to demonstrate effective teamwork in overcoming obstacles and challenges. Our theme 'One Team, One Spirit' extends way beyond the competition arena, and the Gov Games Flag Garden is a perfect opportunity for all entities to show they share the spirit of the Games with this public show of support," said Marwan bin Essa, director of the Gov Games.
Over 154 teams representing 96 international and local government departments took part in the first edition of the Gov Games.
