UAE: Flag                                                      



  • The present colors of Emirati flag stand for the Arabian unification of the seven self-governing sheik-ruled emirates.

  • The Emirian flag incorporates all four pan-Arab colors which represent:

  1. Fertility (green)

  2. Neutrality (white)

  3. Petroleum resources (black)

  4. Unity (red)

  • Red was the traditional color incorporated into all flags of the emirates before their unification. The present-day red dash is meant to remember the former flags of the Kharijite Muslims.

  • The flag is considered one of the most important national symbols and it represents the people and their pride.
