In accordance with the direction of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, the HCT-Al Ain Women’s campus (AAW) celebrated UAE’s nation-wide Flag Day on November 1, 2018.

All AAW students, staff, and faculty gathered in front of the main reception area where the AAW Student Council Association Vice President recited the Pledge of Allegiance. Afterward, she and Mrs. Hamsa Al Ammari, Executive Director of Al Ain Colleges, raised the flag at 11am sharp.

Following this moving event, 30 white pigeons were set into flight to symbolize peace throughout the UAE, and to honor its beloved leaders under the guidance of HH Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE President, may God protects him always.

The number 30 was specifically selected in recognition of HCT’s 30th year of success in education.
