National Flag

United Arab Emirates Flag
The flag of the United Arab Emirates is red, green, white, and black in color; there is a red vertical rectangle on the flagpole side. The right side of the flag, from the top down, is green, black, and red. The red symbolizes the ancestral warbler bird, green symbolizes pastures, the white symbolizes success, and black is a symbol of fighting.

History
In the 7th century AD, the UAE was part of the Arab Empire. In the early 16th century, the Portuguese invaded, followed by the arrival of British, Dutch, and French settlers. In the 18th century, the Bani Yas tribe controlled the country, including Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah and Kawaximu tribal control. After the British invasion in 1820, the country gradually became a British protectorate. On March 1, 1971, the British announced that a treaty would be signed with the Persian Gulf country at the end of the year. In the same year, in December, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, and the Fujairah Emirate proclaimed six unified United Arab Emirates. In February 1972, Nahayima angle Emirates formally joined the union.

Economic and Cultural Customs
The United Arab Emirates are rich in oil. The economy is dominated by oil production and the petrochemical industry. There is also a handicraft weaving industry, mainly employing women.

Camel racing is a traditional sport. Eagle hunting is also popular, so people spare no expense to buy a ferocious falcon for domestication. Men of the UAE wear white gowns, a headscarf, and a black headband. Women wear long black robes that may cover dyed red toenail polish on their feet. Fond of wearing gold jewelry, they also decorate hands and feet with black makeup.

Given the country's humid climate, most people do not like to wear leather shoes. Combined with the tradition of not allowing shoes on the carpet or rug, some people prefer sandals.

Abu Dhabi
The United Arab Emirates' capital of Abu Dhabi is a popular tourist city. The urban green area comprises 640 hectares, one of the world's largest parks. One of the cleanest cities in the world, it is said to bethe "Garden of the Middle East." The waterfront park has a large fountain, and the pool has an Arab-style water bottle and seven large copper cups. The kettle pours the water into the seven copper cups, a symbol of the UAE's political system, in which seven emirates share the prosperity of the State.
