In January 2002 I spent a week in the UAE. I saw the flag of the Emirates Heritage Club, white with black
Arabic lettering and a black logo similar to a circle formed by triangles. The flag could be seen in several places
(sort of E.H.C. Branches) and in every one of them there were plenty of identical flags.

The Emirates Heritage Club aims to educate the new generations the heritage of their ascendants through developing all the traditional activities, carrying out the studies and research works, spreading the cultural and ideational awareness among the sons of the United Arab Emirates, and also to deepen the national feeling towards their country's culture.
