Today marks another occasion to celebrate UAE Flag day! Usually this day is where residents and local Emiratis raise the UAE flag in remembrance of the achievements and efforts of Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al Nahayan and to also celebrate his inauguration as the President of UAE.

What does the UAE flag colours actually mean? Here’s a quick guide through on what each colour represent:

Red – Signifies firmness, bravery, strength and courage.

Green – Symbolises hope, joy, optimism and love.

White – Represents peace and honesty.

Black – stands for the defeat of enemies and strength of mind.

UAE Flag Day is also another opportunity to reminisce and acknowledge the work of the Founding fathers Sheikh Zayed, Sheikh Rashid and their brothers from the other five Emirates in building the nation.

It is truly a remarkable day that is only for Emiratis but to expats living in UAE as well.

From all of us at Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi, we wish you a wonderful UAE Flag Day celebration!
