Quote of H.E. Ali Essa Al Nuaimi, Director General of DED Ajman - Flag Day

As a citizen of this incredible country, we raise the UAE flag today with great pride and honour. We are proud of the UAE’s achievements started by our founding father, Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and the state’s milestones that have made a mark globally. The Flag Day is the commemoration of when H. H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan became our country’s president, carrying the message of the Union faithfully and wisely to lead the nation towards growth and prosperity.

This occasion is a timely remembrance of our path towards growth and development, teaching us that with determination and management we can do the impossible. As we celebrate a new year of great achievements, we congratulate H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE; H. H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai; H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE's Armed Forces; and Their Highnesses, Supreme Council Members and Rulers of the Emirates. We reaffirm our commitment to unite behind our leaders and continue the legacy of our founding father, who envisioned a safer and more prosperous future for the country.
