لحظة فخر جديدة في ظل احتفالاتنا باليوم الوطني لدولتنا العزيزة ... تم تحطيم رقم قياسي جديد لأكبر علم بمساحة ١٤٤ متر مربع حلق خلال قفزة مظلية حرة في سماء الوطن. ... 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
The video shows Sheikh Hamdan jumping out of a plane over Dubai’s iconic Palm Jumeirah with three other comrades. Flying thousands of feet in the air, the four skydivers impressively synchronise and coordinate the unfolding of a 144.28 meter long UAE flag which then majestically flutters vertically in the air over the UAE. Two additional skydivers are also captured creating perfectly choreographed spirals of green and red smoke around the flag during the fall. A breathtaking display of national pride and love that you simply cannot miss.
Happy UAE National Day!
