The University of Dubai (UD) celebrated the UAE Flag Day 2017 by raising the UAE flag in presence of UD President Dr. Eesa Bastaki along with all UD students, staff and faculty members. The event took place by the university’s outdoor fountain in Dubai Academic City where national anthem was played and more than five flags were hoisted.
Dr. Bastaki delivered a speech on this occasion in which he affirmed that the UAE flag is an honor to all who carry it and raise it high. “It is a symbol of dignity. Honoring and raising the flag is the duty of every Emirati and expat living on the land of the UAE,” he said. He added that “we at UD are celebrating this occasion as we believe that our academic and educational role is a part of this country’s progress.”
