The UAE, which is already home to a number of world records, has now added a new Guinness World Record with the largest greeting card mosaic which is in the form of the country’s flag.

A magnificent piece of UAE flag made with mosaic which measures 498.33 m², has been added to the Guinness World Records under the initiative of Nefsy, an eCommerce company, during the celebrations to mark the UAE’s 49th National Day last December.

This was part of the biggest mosaic Emirati Flag campaign which was sponsored by the National Food Product Company (NFPC). The campaign was conducted in collaboration with the Emirates Red Crescent, the Government of Dubai, and the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department.

The initiative targeted to offer support to control the spread of COVID-19 and mitigate its social and economic impact, through in-kind donations for underprivileged families.

The Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department in Dubai supported the cause along with the NFPC by providing 49,000 food packs, including rice, flour, edible oil, sugar, salt, hand-sanitizers, as well as bottled water offered by the Oasis Water Company.

Each package had a card for needy families which included the phrase ‘Don’t Worry’ as a message of support and love. The Emirates Red Crescent contributed to the campaign by distributing the packages to families in need in 10 days.

The cards were used to create the biggest mosaic Emirati Flag, measuring 498.3 m², which was the first and the largest flag of its kind. The outstanding piece of the mosaic was placed in the courtyard of the Police Academy in the Al Wasel district.
