Commercial Control and Protection Department of Department of Economic Development in Ras AL Khaimah launched last November its annual campaign “Our Country Our Pledge”. The campaign came in line with the celebrations of the 47th National Day of UAE in order to check and make sure the emblems and flags are free of deformations or damages, for they are a symbol of our Emirati national identity which we are proud of. A competent team of the Department’s inspectors, in cooperation with volunteers from Sawaeid Al-Khayr Team of Ras AL Khaimah Courts, has organized extensive visits for shops and business enterprises in the Emirate. The campaign has resulted in confiscating 100 items that had product defects and incorrect arrangement of the flag’s colors.
In this context, Asmaa Saeed AL Dahmani, Campaign Coordinator, said that this annual national campaign carried out by RAKDED comes under our responsibility to preserve UAE flags in good state in markets. All members of society buy these flags to participate in this special occasion and in other national events; therefore, RAKDED seeks to implement this campaign every year by increasing the extensive visits for shops.
