Flag of the United Arab Emirates (GIF)

The flag of the United Arab Emirates (Arabic: علم دولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة), often referred to as the UAE flag, features a bold and striking design consisting of horizontal stripes of green, white, and black with a vertical red band on the hoist side. The four colors of the flag hold significant symbolism: green represents fertility and prosperity, reflecting the lush oases and agricultural heritage of the region; white symbolizes peace and purity; black signifies the oil wealth and the strength of the Emirati people; and the red band on the hoist side is a tribute to the historical struggle and sacrifices made for the establishment of the United Arab Emirates. According to a 13th-century poem, the colors in the flag express "the green Arab regions where the Arabs, whose actions are pure white, are defended by blood-red swords in black wars." The flag was officially adopted on December 2, 1971, when the UAE was formed, and it continues to serve as a powerful emblem of the nation's values, unity, and rich heritage.
