The record for the largest number of people forming a single image has been swept up by the Sharjah Police Academy, which got together 4,000 people to replicate an image of the country's Rulers.

The record-breaker, on Monday, featured the faces of the President, His Highness Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and Their Highnesses Members of the Supreme Council and Rulers of the Emirates. The previous record was held by Pakistan, where 1,936 people took part.

Also, more than 21000 national and expatriate students and people from Sharjah schools, universities, military academies and government departments gathered to form a huge human flag. However, the attempt did not break the record of the world's largest human flag formed by more than 24,000 people in Pakistan last October.

Shaikh Sultan bin Mohammed bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler of Sharjah, attended the ceremony organised by the Sharjah Police and Sharjah Police Academy in recognition of the upcoming 41st National Day, on December 2.

The ceremony was also attended by Shaikh Abdullah bin Salem Al Qasimi, Deputy Ruler of Sharjah, Shaikh Mohammed bin Saud Al Qasimi, chairman of Central Department of Finance, and a number of shaikhs and department directors.

Commander-in-Chief of Sharjah Police Major-General Humaid Mohammed Al Hadidi said the event was made to express the depth of belonging and pride in this great nation felt by police. "And (to) express the noblest meaning of loyalty and gratitude for the leadership and in calling the whole world to be a witness of the sincerity of emotion, depth of love, respect and appreciation... between (the) nation and its leadership."
