Let us take a glimpse of the history and relevance of the UAE National Day to the people of the United Arab Emirates.
In December of 1971, the rulers of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Ajman, Al-Ain, Sharjah and Umm al-Quwain decided to unite, framing the conception of UAE (United Arab Emirates). In February 1972, the seventh emirate, Ras Al Khaimah decided to join the conglomerate and become a single entity.
The idea of unified colonization in UAE began soon after the British declared their willingness to abdicate the colonies and provinces of the eastern Mediterranean. A meeting was held between Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum and upon mutual consensus, they decided to unite, inviting the other Gulf Emirates to join the conglomerate.
Although the British withdrew in 1968, the National Day celebrations started in 1971 when the Emirates federal constitution approved on Dec 1, 1971. The very next day, the seventh emirate decided to join hands as well. The current flag of UAE was raised in a hostel building, now known as the “House of Union”, where the heads of 7 emirates gathered to take a momentous decision. Sheikh Zayed was the elected president of the union and Sheikh Rashid was the vice president of UAE. Each year, the 2nd of December marks the festivities of the National day of UAE commemorating the landmark unification.

They are beaming with enthusiasm to celebrate the national holiday with great passion.
