The UAE celebrated its 49th National Day with great fervour and gaiety all across the seven emirates on Tuesday.


In Dubai, a massive yacht parade was organized to mark the event.


Around 11.30 am, more than 20 yachts embarked on a cruise. The yachts went on a circular formation with the flag being hoisted in the middle from another yacht.


Residents on board the yachts had a spectacular view of the event.


UAE citizens and residents have been urged to follow the precautionary measures during National Day celebrations to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
