This is an initiative that promotes the values of allegiance and loyalty and the shared senses of unity, pride, and self-sacrifice. On this precious occasion, we take pride in the relentless efforts of our founding fathers and recall their selfless sacrifices that kept our flag aloft over the past years.

“The Flag Day initiative inspires us to work hard, to excel, and to walk our way towards success with absolute determination to fulfill the UAE Vision 2021 and to meet our strategic plan and the targets outlined in the UAE National Agenda. To continue our march toward development, we must be armed with the tools of innovation and creativity, advanced knowledge, and sophisticated technologies and skills. On this occasion, we recall and honor our martyrs who gave their lives to defend their country and to keep its flag aloft", Dr. Al Zaabi concluded.
