Abu Dhabi Airports to celebrate Flag Day

Posted 31 October 2018 · Add Comment

Abu Dhabi Airports will mark Flag Day on November 1.

 

Bryan Thompson, Abu Dhabi Airports’ chief executive officer, said: “The celebrations taking place across the nation this Flag Day on November 1 are a manifestation of the unity and cohesion among citizens and residents alike. The flag of the United Arab Emirates is a part of the national identity of the UAE; it represents tolerance, belonging, sacrifices made, and sovereignty.

“Coinciding with the anniversary of the accession of Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, Flag Day marks an important date for the country. It is an opportunity to reflect on the achievements and successes of the nation, and express our gratitude to the UAE’s visionary leaders, both past and present.

“By raising the national flag at all of Abu Dhabi Airports’ premises, we are renewing our commitment to national initiatives and implementing the nation’s values on a daily basis. Abu Dhabi Airports has taken our commitment one step further as last month we adopted the values of the nation’s founding father, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, May His Soul Rest In Peace, as our Corporate values.  The values of Wisdom, Respect, Sustainability and Human Development have become our compass in everything we do.”

Thompson concluded: “The fact that this initiative has been carried out simultaneously by offices throughout the country is a reflection of the UAE’s sense of national unity. It also signifies the deep sense of national pride in the demonstrable achievements that have been realized by the UAE throughout its history.”
