posted on 24/11/2012: 3526 views



The Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, has endorsed the Flag Day Initiative, to be observed annually on 30th November each year by the UAE people concurrently with the anniversary of the election of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan as UAE President.

Sheikh Mohammed also launched the "My work elevates my Flag" campaign" organised by Watani Programme as part of the 41st National Day anniversary celebrations. The campaign aims to blend the sense of nationhood with loyalty to the country to preserve its achievements and inculcate the concept of good citizenship.

The Flag Day initiative reflects respect for the flag as a symbol of sovereignty and unity. It targets students in schools and universities nationwide, including both Emiratis and expatriate students, as well as their parents and guardians.

Activities of Flag Day, themed "My work elevates my flag", will include an art show and another show for children with autism.

The Watani Programme activities will involve field visits by organisers of the programme to a number of public institutions and corporations. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
