His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Supreme Chairman and CEO of Emirates Airlines and Group, cut the traditional cake to mark the occasion, and toured the various stalls and displays.

The traditional "Ayala" dance, performed by the Sharjah National Band, was a joyful addition to the atmosphere of the celebrations, in which the employees of the Emirates Group participated.

Emirati women displayed features of their heritage, such as handmade burqas and talli textiles, in addition to a henna art booth, displays of traditional artifacts, and Arabic coffee.

The staff's children also enjoyed the activities in a dedicated corner.

Seven professional Emirati musicians from the National Orchestra took to the stage and played the national anthem “Aishi Biladi” and local songs using traditional instruments such as the oud and the qanun.

The Emirates Group celebrations of the Union Day this year were supported by the Emirates Group Youth Council, which includes 10 Emiratis working in various departments.
