Photographer's Note

National Day (Arabic: اليوم الوطني‎; Yawm al watani) is celebrated on December 2 each year in the United Arab Emirates. It marks the UAE's formal nationalisation from the British Protectorate Treaties which ended on December 1, 1971 and the eventual, federal unification of the seven emirates in 1971 which combined to form the modern-day country, headed by Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the federation's first president. Grand celebrations are held across the country to mark the event.
