Dubai Police sets Guinness World Record

posted on 16/12/2015: 2420 views



Dubai Police broke the Guinness World Record for the largest number of signatures collected expressing loyalty to the President His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The 13,288 signatures gathered by Dubai Police included signatures of Emiratis and expatriates, which helped them break the previous record of 12,884 signatures set a year ago by China.

The signatures were collected on four different pieces of cloth, which represented the four colours of the UAE flag, which were then sewn together to create a 10-metre long and 5.6-metre wide flag.

Dubai Police announced on Monday, that Major-General Khamis Mattar Al Mazeina received the Guinness World Record Certificate from Colonel Ahmad Mattar Al Muhairi, Director of the Forensic Science and Criminology Department at Dubai Police.

Maj Gen Al Mazeina praised the 20 teams that volunteered to collect the signatures at malls, Global Village and other public areas in the city.

This is not the first entry to the Guinness book of records for Dubai Police as they were recognised in 2010 for creating the world's biggest seashell mosaic design, which was laid out by 116 police officers.

The mosaic design was the Dubai Police logo, and it took the officers 335 hours over 32 days to create the mosaic, which was 13.6 metres long and 12 metres wide, weighing around 1,700kg.

In 2013, Dubai Police also broke the record for creating the UAE's flag out of 80,656 plastic bottles. The flag was 37 metres long and 14 metres wide, breaking London's record of 18,620 bottles. – Gulf News - http://gulfnews.com/news/uae/society/dubai-police-sets-guinness-world-record-1.1638198
