Ever since the event was launched in 2013, Kite Beach has been adorned with hundreds of UAE flags, hence the name: Flag Garden. Here is a throwback photo of the colourful beach last year, shared by @nhabayeb on Instagram:

Capture the UAE Spirit in Kite Beach’s “Flag Garden”

Back in 2013, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, launched Flag Day. It is a national campaign that pays tribute to the emirates’ past, dynamic present, and bright future.

Fast Facts about the UAE Flag
Did you know? The flag of the United Arab Emirates was created on 2nd December 1971, along with the unification of the seven emirates that we know today. It consists of four colours, each with its own meaning and significance:

  • Red – courage, hardiness, and strength
  • Green – growth, prosperity, and hope
  • White – peace, honesty, and neutrality
  • Black – strength of mind, defeat of enemies

The UAE Flag Day is usually commemorated on 3rd November. It’s not going to be a public holiday (i.e. we still have work and school), but everyone can certainly join in the celebration. You will see flags raised everywhere!
