‘’Flag Day’’ is celebrated to commemorate the anniversary of the country’s ruler, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, becoming president in 1971. The students of both Primary and Secondary school at Dubai Gem dressed up in the different colors of the UAE National Flag and at noon formed a Human flag. Students were inspired by a short presentation about the symbolism of the flag and they later sang the National Anthem with pride.
The aim of the Flag Day is to enhance the feeling of national unity and pride. The country has been gripped with patriotic fervor as citizens and residents across the seven Emirates celebrated this event with great pomp and show.
