Dubai sets largest sticky notes mosaic world record

posted on 28/05/2014: 2482 views



Dubai Land Department (DLD) has set a new Guinness World Record for the largest sticky notes mosaic, breaking the previous record set in Belgium in 2012.

The mosaic, which was formed using 300,000 notes, is part of DLD's "Together for a Better Future” campaign, aimed at raising awareness about autism in the UAE.

After authenticating the achievement, a delegation from Guinness World Records visited DLD to provide an official certificate from the organisation acknowledging its success.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Maktoum, Head of DLD and Majida Ali Rashid, assistant Director-General of DLD, received the Guinness World Records delegation at the department's headquarters on May 26, accepting from them the certificate for the "Largest Sticky Notes Mosaic”.

Once the mosaic had been completed and we could see the ‘Autism awareness Ribbon' that runs through it, as well as the ‘Together for a Better Future' slogan, we felt the true value of our success,” said Sheikh Mohammed.

"The goal of this initiative was to show support and backing to children with autism, as well as their families and the associations that work with them,” said Sultan Butti bin Mejren, Director-General, DLD.

DLD's world record achievement required high level of planning and coordination to ensure its success, with a number of teams working over a period of several weeks to place the 300,000 sticky notes that would form the final mosaic.

The memo-style pieces of paper were affixed to 300 separate boards, each board measuring 2.8 metres by 97.5 centimetres. Now fully assembled, the mosaic covers an area the size of 581.4 square metres.

Samer Khallouf, Project Manager Middle East and North Africa at Guinness World Records, said: "This record is not only based on the number of sticky notes used. The mosaic must represent a recognisable image when viewed in its entirety without any significant gaps and all sticky notes used must be of the same size.” – Emirates 24│7 – Read more:
