The 2nd of December 2011 marks the 40th anniversary of the establishment of unity between the seven founding fathers of the United Arab Emirates.
An anniversary of this prestige requires an iconic and strong brand platform to embody the achievements of the past four decades. The UAE 40 National Day logotype depicts a silhouette of the iconic image taken on 2nd of December 1971 depicting the establishment of the federation of the UAE.
This strong image captures the seven founders of the UAE, lead by the late HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who collectively believed strongly in the union. As per the original image, the UAE National flag is pivoted in the centre of the logotype. As a representative from the ruling family of Ras Al Khaimah was missing from the original picture the image was slightly modified to include Sheikh Saqr Bin Muhammed Al-Qasimi to ensure all seven emirates are illustrated. This modified image is one of the only true representations of the ruling fathers at the time, where spirit of the Union was born, and a flag was raised
The National Day Primary Colour Palette sets the tone for a strong and patriotic brand, inspired from The UAE national flag. The Secondary Colours allow for a wide range of combinations to add variety and longevity to the brand. The Secondary Colours have been inspired by the features within the seven Emirates, bringing together a palette that reflects the flavor of the UAE. Read More...visit http://en.uaenationalday.ae/
