From New York to Saudi Arabia, the world celebrates UAE National Day

The Nasdaq building in New York has paid tribute to the late president, Sheikh Zayed.

The stock market building mural, which also displays the UAE’s 46th National Day emblem, features two images of Sheikh Zayed, one in monochrome and the other featuring the UAE national colours, Wam reported on Saturday.

It comes as countries from Saudi Arabia to the UK send messages in honour of National Day.

For example, the King Abdulaziz Centre for World Culture in Saudi Arabia has been lit up with the colours of the UAE flag for National Day.

Oil company Saudi Aramco reposted a video from the country’s oil minister, Khalid Al Falih, showing the complex in Dhahran emblazoned with red, white, black and green in honour of National Day on Saturday. The arts centre is also known as Ithra and is a Saudi Aramco initiative. More info
