Na­tion dis­plays pride

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS - news@7days.ae

To­mor­row’s 45th UAE Na­tional Day will see cel­e­bra­tions the length of the en­tire na­tion over the long weekend. The fes­tiv­i­ties are un­der way al­ready with UAE flags bil­low­ing in the wind and a sea of red, green white and black on dis­play. A Guin­ness World Record was set on Mon­day by GEMS ed­u­ca­tion stu­dents at the start of the week to mark the oc­ca­sion. More than 2,000 GEMS stu­dents took part in the hu­man trans­for­ma­tion of an open hand into the iconic three-fin­gered salute in­tro­duced by HH Sheikh Mo­hammed bin Rashid Al Mak­toum, UAE Vice Pres­i­dent and Prime Min­is­ter and Ruler of Dubai.

Yes­ter­day, many or­gan­i­sa­tions also marked Com­mem­o­ra­tion Day, which was in­au­gu­rated last year to re­mem­ber those that have lost their lives in ser­vice of their coun­try.
