Why Falcon?

Any visitor to UAE , or internet surfer to the government website will notice the falcon in all of them ...

It's the Coat of arms of UAE

It's on the money!

can be seen on the reverse side of All UAE Paper Money "Dirhams" & the Observe side of the 500 Dirham bill

....... 10Dirham Bill (reverse)

.................500 Dirham Bill (observe)

It is very noticed that faclon is almost in most of the GCC Countries( Gulf Council Countries) stamps .. money ..etc as it is is the national bird United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Oman and several other countries and is a symbol of force, Power, Free spirit, Royalty and Courage. Hunting by falcons or Falconry is one of the most and important means of hunting in Arab tradition and culture (Mostly for Royalty and noblemen) .


Reason I thought of writing it is that Falcon had been on UAE Definitive Stamps for years (Since 1973) , and a few other stamps ( including the latest one in the previous post).. so it deserve to write abit about it.

here are examples of some
