In an open demonstration of national pride, Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) held flag-raising ceremonies yesterday at its two operating subsidiaries in the UAE, in celebration of Flag Day.
Held annually on 3 November, Flag Day was created by H H Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai) to mark the anniversary of H H Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s accession as President of the UAE.
The EGA flag-raising events took place simultaneously at Dubai Aluminium (“DUBAL”, also known as EGA Jebel Ali) and Emirates Aluminium (“EMAL”, also known as EGA Al Taweelah).
Commenting on the occasion, Abdulla Kalban (MD & CEO: EGA) said, “A proudly Emirati-owned and operated business, our vision is to build a legacy of excellence for the UAE and the world. It is therefore an honour and a privilege to celebrate Flag Day.”
