School children waving UAE national flags, people wearing ‘I Love UAE’ accessories and patriotic songs playing in the background… it could only mean one thing – UAE Flag Day spirit was in full swing on the second day of Sharjah International Book Fair (SIBF). Uniting Emiratis, residents, visitors and guests at the fair, the celebration of the UAE’s red, green, white and black standard was a visual and aural delight.

SIBF 2017, the annual celebration of books, literature and culture, donned a patriotic look to celebrate the occasion. Various authorities and organisations with a presence at the fair marked the day with activities and flag hoisting ceremonies at different locations throughout its halls, with the visitors taking part with patriotic fervour.

Younger visitors collected flags and sweets that were being distributed at the pavilions and made the most of on-the-spot face-painting, poem recitation and opportunities to sing.
