Organised by Brand Dubai at Kite Beach in Jumeirah, the ninth edition of ‘Flag Garden’ celebrates His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s accession to office as President of the UAE.

The garden features 4,000 UAE flags arranged to create the portrait of Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed, honouring his ambitious vision and leading contributions to the UAE’s development.

"This year, the ‘Flag Garden’ pays tribute to President Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, a visionary leader who is steering the country’s journey of development and prosperity and has played an instrumental role in making the UAE one of the world's most advanced nations. Organising this creative annual initiative is aligned with our efforts to highlight Dubai’s unique identity and aspirations and celebrate the contributions of iconic national leaders,” Al Marri said.

Mohammed Al Mulla, CEO of DMI, said: “The UAE Flag Day is a national occasion that reaffirms a sense of belonging and loyalty to the country and its leadership. The flag reminds us of the role our leaders have played in making the UAE a leading nation on the global stage. On the occasion of UAE Flag Day, we renew our commitment to serving the nation and supporting its development journey so that the UAE continues to be at the forefront of nations shaping the future.”
