Does your phone network say ‘UAE 51’? Here’s why…

Happy Birthday, UAE…

Eagle-eyed residents may have spotted a change to their network provider name on Wednesday, November 23 to ‘UAE 51’. If you did spot you’re probably wondering ‘why?’ Well, it’s to celebrate UAE National Day.

The UAE turns 51 on Friday, December 2 and everyone who calls the UAE home will be able to enjoy nationwide celebrations to mark the occasion.

Every year, both the private and public sectors enjoy a day off work so they can come together to celebrate. UAE National Day falls on a Friday but remember, it’s Commemoration Day (previously known as Martyrs’ Day) on Thursday, December 1, so most UAE residents will enjoy a four-day long weekend. The news was confirmed by the Federal Authority For Government Human Resources.

Here’s how you can celebrate UAE National Day
