The United Arab Emirates National Day is celebrated in today’s Doodle. This day in 1971 saw the unification of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Ajman, Al-Ain, Sharjah, and Umm al-Quwain into a single nation. The following year, the seventh emirate, Ras Al Khaimah, joined to create the United Arab Emirates.
An exhilarating show at the Zayed Sports City Stadium in Abu Dhabi marks the beginning of the celebrations. Watching aerobatic displays and orchestras attracts thousands of spectators. As the celebrations continue into the night, fireworks explode across the Abu Dhabi skyline following speeches given by national leaders to honor the country’s founding fathers.
The United Arab Emirates’ national flag was officially adopted in 1971, as depicted in current artwork.It has a red line running vertically and green, white, and black stripes running horizontally. These stripes stand for courage, prosperity, peace, and mental toughness.
United Arab Emirates, happy National Day!
