Three equal horizontal stripes (green, white, black) with a wide red vertical stripe on the side of the flagpole.


The red (vertical) band on the left recalls the historical red flag of the various emirates. Green symbolizes fertility; white symbolizes neutrality; black symbolizes the oil wealth of the United Emirates or 'black gold'. Overall, these colors also represent the classic pan-Arab colors that we encounter in many other national flags of the region. Six proud and independent emirates were united under this flag in 1971: Abu Dhabi (the largest emirate by area), Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Sharjah and Umm al-Qaiwain. In 1972, the emirate of Ras al-Khaimah was added. This is considered an admirable phenomenon politically. Original prophecies by some other countries of the short-term failure of an extremely complex unification of this kind have long since been proven wrong. The association has now been functioning perfectly for decades, or rather has been running proverbially 'like clockwork'.
