Country celebrates Flag Day today

posted on 03/11/2013: 2670 views



The United Arab Emirates celebrates on Sunday the third anniversary of the Flag Day. It is an occasion to reinforce the culture of valuing the flag which represents the homeland. It is also an opportunity to reinforce the spirit of belonging to the flag, in conjunction with the day when His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan became the President of the UAE.

Writer Asmaa Al Zaraouni, the deputy chief of the Emirates Writers Union, recalls the Emirati flag and remembers childhood days when the pupil learnt the values of respecting and revering the flag as a symbol of the country.

She assures that since that moment, whenever she sees the flag and listens to the national anthem, her heartbeats accelerate due to the excessive feelings of love and respect. She stresses that the colours of the flag gathered the seven emirates under one banner.

The artist, Ibrahim Al Awadi, says that the Emirati flag is a great symbol which represents meanings of strength, unity, loftiness and haughtiness. Awadi was always keen to use the colours of the flag in his paintings, saying that the colours of the flag are the main colours of painting and they are similar to most colours of the Arab countries' flags. – The Gulf Today
