All you need to know about the UAE Flag

The four-coloured flag represents meanings of justice, peace, tolerance, power and moderation.


UAE marks 45th anniversary of National Day. As part of the celebrations, all the emirates has started the decoration works in the capital and suburban areas, with thousands of flags and lighting decorations.

On this day, Emiratis across the UAE sing the country's National Anthem and hoist the flag atop their buildings and at their backyards. They organise a number of lectures and competitions about the history of the flag, its colours, and elements of national identity.

The UAE flag, a symbol of pride for all Emiratis, is created by using traditional pan-Arab colours. Let's find out what the different colours on UAE's national flag represent.

The four-coloured flag represents meanings of justice, peace, tolerance, power and moderation. 

The UAE flag has a deeper meaning for Emiratis since the Pan-Arab coloured banner was adopted on December 2, 1971, the day that united all the seven emirates.

The red colour symbolises the sacrifices of previous generations who had laid the foundations for the Union and the sacrifices of the nation's martyrs to safeguard the UAE, its achievements and gains.

The green colour symbolises growth, prosperity, green environment and cultural renaissance

The white colour displays the UAE's charitable contributions and the state's approach to support the security and peace in the world.

The black colour reflects the strength of Emirati citizens, rejection of injustice and extremism.
