SEOUL, Nov. 27 (Yonhap) -- South Korea will display the national flag of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on key digital screens in its capital of Seoul next month to mark the Middle East country's Union Day, the foreign ministry said Tuesday.
The flag will be shown on Dec. 2, the day commemorating the federal unification of the UAE's seven emirates in 1971, in a reciprocal move for Abu Dhabi's display of South Korea's national flag to mark Seoul's Liberation Day on Aug. 15.
The UAE flag will appear on electronic billboards and screens installed in the South Korean government's central building in the capital city, the Seoul Metropolitan Government's edifice and a popular tower on Mount Nam, the ministry said.
"This display of the UAE flag on the country's national day is expected to carry a symbolic meaning for the reaffirmation of the countries' strategic partnership," the ministry said in a press release.
