On December 2nd the 40th UAE National Day was celebrated. The celebration reflected on ‘the spirit that ties us together, the Spirit of the Union that enables millions of people to coexist and build lives together. The Spirit of the Union is derived from the vision and leadership of the Late Sheikh Zayed, and now lives on through His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and his fellow leaders of the nation’s Emirates who are shaping the UAE’s future.’
Part of the celebrations was the Official Ceremony at Zayed Sports Stadium, which was filled to capacity. The Spirit of the Union came to life as young and old, men and women, Emirati and expats alike were patriotically dressed in the nation’s colours creating a sea of red, white, black and green across the stadium.
In the celebration Masdar City was also highlighted – with the PRT vehicles also taking to the stage. Dancers carrying parts of the vehicle came together to form the vehicle shape.
