GEMS Students Set New Guinness World Records Title as Tribute to UAE's 46th National Day.

Celebrating the 46 th UAE National Day, over 4,130 students from GEMS Education schools in the UAE gathered to form the 'World's Largest Human Waving Flag' and set another Guinness World Records title.

The students, from GEMS Cambridge International School - Abu Dhabi, and GEMS United Indian School, were all dressed in the National flag colors, creating an image of the country's flag waving.

The record was validated by Guinness World Records officials at the Cambridge International School, Abu Dhabi's sports ground.

Dino Varkey, Chief Executive Officer, GEMS Education, said: "Today, after 46 years, the UAE is one of the most advanced and sought-after countries across the globe. By creating the 'World's Largest Human Waving Flag', we wanted to pay a tribute to the UAE and the achievements of our visionary leaders.

"Celebrating this occasion is a proud tradition we will continue at GEMS Education and I would like to thank all the students, teachers and parents who have supported the event with such great enthusiasm," added Dino.

This is the fourth world record attempted by students of GEMS Education and the third record that they created. Previously in 2016, GEMS students paid tribute to the UAE for National Day by creating 'World's Largest Transforming Human Image'. In 2015, students created a record for the world's largest human sentence and in 2014, students of 119 nationalities from GEMS Education achieved the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title after they sang the UAE national anthem at one time.
