The Waving Flag Of The Unwavering Country

(Union House, 2nd of December St., Jumeirah, Dubai)

In this very place, an initiative started by the emirs of two Sheikhdoms Abu Dhabi and Dubai, formed a union, together with other four Sheikhdoms; Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Fujairah and year later joined by the seventh Sheikdom Ras Al Khaimah. That was in December 2, 1971 after the British-Trucial Sheikhdoms treaty expired.
With the discovery of oil reserves back in the 60's, United Arab Emirates (UAE) started its development until today.
This giant flag simply illustrates the solid foundation which is the basis of its country's success.
Though a bit shaken by the recent economic crisis, leaders of the country were able to lead its people in surpassing the trial.
Then came the so called Arab Spring, that brings simultaneous mass protests and unrest to most countries in the Middle East.
Unfazed and resilient, UAE continues to grow mainly on the economy.
With oil reserves ranked as world's sixth largest, UAE is one of the most developed economies in West Asia, among the world's wealthiest nations per capita GDP and classified as the high-income developing economy by the IMF.
