Dubai creates world’s largest flower carpet

DUBAI, November 26, 2019

Over 5,000 volunteers, including university students, families and workers representing more than 150 nationalities in Dubai have created the world’s largest natural flower carpet highlighting the UAE’s values of tolerance.

Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Tolerance said that the true meaning of the achievement, which is part of a three-day initiative launched by the Ministry of Tolerance, in cooperation with several national federal, local and academic institutions, at the Festival City Dubai is highlighted by the fact that all nationalities have worked together in harmony to complete their work.

This achievement would not have been possible without the many nationalities whose languages, religions, colours and nationalities differed, but they came together to present, to the public, a symbolic image of tolerance in the homeland of tolerance, affirming the belief of everyone in tolerance as a message and a way of life, he further added.

Sheikh Nahyan made this statement after receiving a certificate from the Guinness World Records, during a ceremony organised by the ministry, in the presence of Afra Al Sabri, director-general of the Office of the Minister of Tolerance, and many federal and local leaders, along with the participating volunteers.

Sheikh Nahyan dedicated the record to all those who participated in the achievement, stressing that the spirit that everyone showed deserves appreciation. He further said that this spirit is the real goal of all the activities organised by the ministry, a spirit that always emphasises the strength of the UAE’s community cohesion and reveals that the message of tolerance has already reached all segments of society, without exception. – TradeArabia News Service
