It is a day that falls on the third of November to strengthen the Emirati identity.

We are grateful to him for the gift he bequeathed to us and to our future generations'.

At GEMS World Academy – Abu Dhabi celebration of the UAE Flag Day, hundreds of learners and parents attended a special assembly that was planned and presented by the students. In true IB fashion, the community displayed their reflective nature as they inquired about the colours of the UAE flag and were asked to link them to the IB Learner Profile. The children learned that it was designed by a young Emirati, Abdullah Mohammad Al Maainah. They linked the red vertical that represents hardiness, bravery, strength and courage to being principled. The green that represents hope, joy, optimism and love was linked to caring. The white that represents peace and honesty was linked to being open-minded, and the black band representing strength of mind was linked to being knowledgeable and balanced.
