UAE National Day marked in New York, Saudi Arabia
New York’s Nasdaq building paid tribute to the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the UAE’s founding father, to mark national day.
The façade of the stock market building featured two images of Sheikh Zayed, one in monochrome and the other featuring the UAE national colours, and also displayed the UAE’s 46th National Day emblem.
The initiative, presented by NASDAQ Dubai, congratulated the UAE leadership and Emirati citizens on the 46th anniversary of the founding of the Union.
In Dhahran, oil giant Saudi Aramco also posted a video showing the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture lit up with the UAE colours of red, white, black and green in honour of national day. The arts centre, Ithra, is described as an all-purpose culture destination, which is supported by Saudi Aramco.
