UAE Flag - Facts
The current UAE flag was designed by Mr. Abdulla Mohammed Al Ma’enah after he read an advertisement announcing competition for designing the UAE flag by Abu Dhabi Amiri Diwan, which was released in Al Itihad newspaper published in Abu Dhabi two months prior to declaration of the UAE. Out of the 1030 designs received, the flag designed by Mr. Abdulla Mohammed Al Ma’enah was selected. The designer was inspired by verses of poem written by the poet Safi-u-ddin Al Hali describing our acts as white, plains as green, battles as dark and swords as red. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan was the first person to hoist the flag on December 2, 1971.
