Kalel Wears Kandoora to School

December 02, 2011


In honor and gratitude to our host country, the Kalel wore a Kandoora (a white cloak used by male UAE nationals) accented by a cap and silk shawl in UAE flag colors  to school during their UAE National Day celebration. The United Arab Emirates marks its 40th year today since its  formation as a country .

"National Day is celebrated on the 2nd of December each year in the United Arab Emirates. It marks the UAE's formal independence from the United Kingdom and the eventual unification of the seven emirates in 1971 which combined to form the modern-day country.
On 2 December 1971, all emirates except for Ras Al Khaima, united as a country at the suggestion of H.H. Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, H.H. Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, and his other brothers, the rulers of other emirates. Ras Al Khaima joined later as a part of the country. Qatar and Bahrain were also suggested to be a part of the country but they declined the idea.
