UAE To Celebrate Flag Day On November 2

The Ministry of Cabinet and the Future has issued a circular announcing that UAE Flag Day celebrations will take place on Thursday, November 2 instead of Friday, November 3. It called on all ministries, federal bodies and their affiliates to raise the UAE flag at 11:00am. Flag Day is a national campaign, which was launched by His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Dubai Ruler, in November 2013 to commemorate the accession of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan as President of the nation. It is a day of celebration, reflecting a symbol of unity, patriotism and loyalty to the UAE and its wise leadership, and adherence to the values of the union established by the UAE's Founding Fathers.
