UAE National Day, which is celebrated every year on the 2nd of December in the United Arab Emirates, is also a national holiday. In 1971, on this date, rulers of Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Umm al-Quwain, Ajman, & Al-Ain agreed together for uniting as one country. Therefore, it’s celebrated for achieving independence as the United Arab Emirates. This year it will be the 51st UAE National Day, which will be one of the happiest days throughout UAE.
History of UAE National Day
In the year 1820, Britishers or Britain offered protection for sheikhdom tribes, which were known as the Trucial States. In return for this, they were allowed to take control of their land. Tribes made the mistake of letting Britain solve their inner disputes. On the contrary, Britishers used their tactics in the administration of Trucial State affairs.
In 1968, Britain decided to withdraw itself from the Trucial States. After a few years of the Britishers' exit, 6 rulers of Trucial states, except Ras Al Khaimah decided to unite on the 18th of July 1971. The Supreme Council further declared that the United Arab Emirates is an independent sovereign state, thereby being among the Arab World”.
Soon, Ras Al Khaimah also decided to unite with the UAE, on 2nd December 1971, which is now celebrated as National UAE Day.
