Abu Dhabi: A new world record was set on UAE National Day as a UAE flag measuring 50,000 square feet flew over Abu Dhabi, forming the largest aerial banner ever flown.

The banner was towed by helicopter and was clearly visible from up to 20 kilometres away.

The route was specifically designed to take the flag right across the capital making it visible to virtually the entire population of the city of Abu Dhabi.

A building on Salam Street in Abu Dhabi is illuminated with the UAE flag and portraits of Shaikh Khalifa, Shaikh Mohammad and General Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
