The emirate has set a new world record for creating the largest greeting card mosaic. The mosaic, which spells out the slogan "Union Spirit", was made to mark the 42nd UAE National Day.

The event was held by Ajman Tourism Development Department and the announcement was made on Sunday at 5pm by a Guinness World Record representative.

Around 4,000 people took part in the event on Ajman's Corniche on Sunday. Some 5,500 postcards make up the huge 121-square metre mosaic.

Samer Khallouf, project manager at Guinness World Records who oversaw the attempt, told Gulf News that the last largest greeting card mosaic measuring 101.40 square metres and containing 5,347 greeting cards was created in Taipei City on January 8 this year.

Shaikh Abdul Aziz Bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Chairman of Ajman Tourism Development Department, told Gulf News: "First of all I congratulate the Rulers of the UAE on the occasion of the 42nd National Day.”

He said that he was proud and happy this achievement had placed Ajman on the world map.

"This landmark is a gift for the leadership of UAE on the occasion of National Day.”

Faisal Ahmad Al Nuaimi, director-general of the department, said: "We are delighted at the new achievement and we thank all those who took part.” – Gulf News
