His Highness General Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, this afternoon hoisted the UAE Flag on the flag-staff at the Abu Dhabi Breakwater, marking the conclusion of the Flag Procession Initiative, in which the UAE flag toured the seven Emirates, under the patronage of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

"The successive generations will remember the founders of the Union who had determination and will, overcame hardships and wrote an eventful chapter of history, and the success story for this nation which is now a source of pride for all Arabs. Today we celebrate this glorious occasion with my brothers the Crown Princes and nationals out of loyalty to, and in recognition of, their role and in honour of their memory, as well as in honour for the stature of the Flag for the people of the UAE as this flag represents the symbol of our existence, unity and identity that generations vow to always keep high and fluttering."
