Speaking during the ceremony, HE Musallam praised the UAE’s visionary leadership and stressed that UAE Flag Day is an occasion to reflect on national unity, belonging and loyalty. HE Musallam also explained that it is an opportunity to emphasize ADEK’s role in building an inclusive education ecosystem that empowers future generations to embrace the inherent values embedded in the country’s flag.

We celebrate a renewed commitment to the shared values of unity, diversity, courage and solidarity that tie all Emiratis and residents together,” said HE Sara Musallam. “As we mark UAE Flag Day, we are reminded of our duty to our nation and pledge to uphold the vision of our leadership by doing our part to nurture generations of thought-leaders and global citizens.”
