Union House marks the place where the rulers of all the emirates came together and agreed to unite to form the UAE. The tall flag here can be seen from miles away and conveys the subsequent progress and development this country has seen.
There are actually 2 flags, which one can see if one visits the Etihad Museum next to Union House. One is a smaller flag, which is at the exact spot where the leaders first unfurled the flag of UAE. The tall one is ahead of it and is among the tallest flags in the country.
