National Flag of the UAE
As the UAE has already started 40 days countdown celebrations for their 40th National Day, I approached my friend Kenneth Sequeira who is an ardent philatelist and resident of the UAE to contribute an article on the National flag of the UAE which he with his usual humility has accepted the proposal. Here goes the First Installment of his five parts article on the UAE Flag.
Part I -
On the occasion of the 40th National Day of UAE
(2nd Dec 2011), I (Kenneth Sequeira) would like to wish all my Emirati friends &
the people of UAE on this joyous moment.
His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan (1918 – 2 November 2004), the principal
driving force behind the formation of the UAE was the ruler of Abu Dhabi and first
president of the UAE, a post which he held for over 30 years (1971–2004).
