Some establishments in the UAE will observe a flag raise in the morning and a minute of silence for all the martyrs of the country followed by the UAE national anthem.

However, since the Commemoration day is followed by the UAE National Day, the country will receive a long weekend.

The ministry has announced that Sunday and Monday will be off for the celebration of the 47th National Day in the country. Work and schools will resume as normal on Tuesday, December 4.
