UAE Flag Day is marked in the United Arab Emirates on November 3. Among the country-wide celebrations in 2019 is the return of The Flag Garden, which has been unveiled on Kite Beach.

The Flag Garden this year has been cleverly laid out to form the faces of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai and H.H. Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nayhan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi when viewed from above.

The display of no less than 4,500 UAE flags on Kite Beach will be available to visit until Tuesday December 10. So, if you fancy getting yourself a wow-worthy snap in front of the flag display, you’ve got a few weeks to do it.
