November 30 public holiday in UAE
The President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan has given orders that the 30th of November every year will be observed as 'Martyr's Day' in memory of and in tribute to the sacrifices offered by the nation's martyrs and its loyal people, who offered their lives so as to keep the UAE flag flying aloft while they were performing their national duties within and outside the country, in civilian, military and humanitarian fields.
The President also ordered that this national event be declared a public holiday.
On this glorious day, national ceremonies and events will be organised where all state institutions, nationals and non-nationals will be engaged to promote, mark and remember the values of sacrifice, dedication and loyalty, which are deeply embedded in the conscience of the UAE citizens who sacrificed their lives in battles of heroism, dedication and national duty.
