My Country My Identity … We carry inside us values of belonging to a dignified nation, the land of our ancestors; my identity lies in the true meaning of union between the leader and people, between time and place.
We have been living for forty one years under the umbrella of the union, writing history with pride and dignity and writing solidarity and beautiful values, doing the impossible for a nation that has been giving us with nonstop generosity. We cannot find enough words to describe its pride.
My identity means my loyalty to a leader, father and a country with a mission among other nations reflecting creativity whenever it is represented and carrying welfare for everyone living on its land. My identity means my belief in God, loving people, leadership carrying welfare and love for everyone and a country filled with security, peace, tolerance and love.
Forty one years marking the anniversary of living under the union and leadership of our father and our pride of Sheikh Zayed, may he rest in peace and our founding fathers. It is an anniversary that is vivid among us every year to renew love, loyalty and sense of belonging.
Sheikh Zayed once said, “The true wealth is sincere and serious work that benefits the human being and his society. Work is eternal; it is what defines the value of a human being and a country”.
The most beautiful models of wisdom and decisions upon which the country of the union was built namely care for the human being in this cherished nation resulted in achievement of the ambitions and hopes of our leader. The nation’s focus on the citizen and eliminating all obstacles and enabling decisions for his/her interest were the main priorities of the union yielding a nation we are proud of, a nation that stands high among all other nations.
Our identity belongs to us and is the source of our pride and dignity. We maintain it as long as we are breathing and support the spirit of the union as we fully believe it is the best among all other nations. We have one heart beating, one flag and one land. We, at Emirates Identity Authority, know that identity is the pillar of this nation and its pride and worked hard to represent the role of identity in the national unity and instil values of solidarity by defining citizens and expatriates under one umbrella representing the latest developments in this field.
We endeavoured to achieve important strategic goals that pave the way for technological potential and collect demographic records to serve as reference for government departments and demographic studies upon which all options and strategic decisions are built in order to achieve welfare and prosperity of this dear nation.
Finally, we congratulate His Highness the UAE President and our wise leadership on the 41st National Day celebrating the establishment of the union wishing them a long and prosperous life and the continuity of progress and prosperity of our dear Emirates.
