Here we take a look at all the celebrations and festivities to welcome the UAE into it's 44th year!
UAE National Day is celebrated on 2nd December each year for two days or more (usually on the 2nd and 3rd). It marks the UAE's formal nationalization from the British Protectorate Treaties which ended on December 1, 1971 and the eventual unification of the seven emirates in 1971 which combined to form the modern-day country.

Residents and visitors to the UAE can expect to join in plenty of events and activities that are currently being planned for this year's celebrations, which will highlight the UAE's values, heritage, culture and achievements.
