DUBAI: Thuraya Telecommunications Company took part in the nationwide UAE Flag Day rituals today by conducting a flag hoisting ceremony in front of its office premises. Following the call of H.H. Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum to celebrate Flag Day, Thuraya participates in the tradition each year and hosts it at both the company’s Head Office location in Dubai as well as its Primary Gateway in Sharjah.
Thuraya’s Flag Day is a communal event that allows all employees to share in the patriotic activity. The Head Office also invited all its building tenants to join in the jubilations. This year, each participant was given a small flag to hold while the flag was raised and the National anthem played. The 20-minute ceremony concluded with a commemorative photograph.
Ahmad Al Shareef, Thuraya’s Chief Human Resources Officer, said: “It’s an honor for Thuraya to celebrate UAE’s heritage and patriotic spirit through traditions like UAE Flag Day. Additionally, it serves to build camaraderie among employees and our neighboring community, as we take a short amount of time to come together and share in a symbolic act that holds meaning to us all.” Biz Today Report
