4 fun ideas for Flag Day

Put your national pride on display

This Thursday residents across the emirates will celebrate UAE Flag Day, honouring and showing their allegiance to the nation by covering it in the country’s colours. As streets, offices, vehicles and villas alike become awash with red, green, white and black, we’ve come up with four easy ways to mark this special occasion at home.


Put together a flag-inspired dessert by decorating a sheet of puff pastry with raspberries, sliced kiwi, whipped cream and blackberries.


Create a salad centrepiece: arrange chopped tomatoes, tabbouleh, toum or hummus and kalamata olives in the design of the flag.


Set out red roses, leafy green pot plants, lilies and soil in the shape of the flag for a natural addition to your decorations.


Top plain cupcakes from the Spinneys bakery with swirls of red, black, green and white buttercream icing for a sweet treat.


Head into stores to find UAE-themed caps (with adjustable backs), Party Magic’s mini pin badges and packs of green, white, red and black balloons to help you showcase your national pride this November 3rd.
