DUBAI – The UAE reached new heights to mark its 48th National Day with the Crown Prince of Dubai skydiving to set a new world record.
Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum on Sunday (December 1) shared a video on his social media channels about the record-breaking largest flag flown in free fall.
Sheikh Hamdan and four other skydivers proudly flew the flag measuring 144.28sqm over Dubai’s iconic Palm Jumeirah.
“Another proud moment as our nation’s flag sets a new World Record for the largest flag flown in free fall measuring 144.28 m². Happy National Day,” Sheikh Hamdan said.
As the skydivers choreographed their fall to unfurl the flag on air, they were wrapped in spirals of green and red smoke during the fall.
Watch how the record-breaking feat unfolded:
