As institutions, government bodies and schools across the UAE were celebrating National Flag Day on 3 November, police received an unusual phone call from an elderly man asking for assistance to raise a flag on his rooftop.
Dubai Police have since released CCTV footage that was recorded from a patrol’s dash-cam, revealing how they came to the assistance of the resident.
Two police officers entered the premises and successfully got the flag up. Before leaving, both the police officers gave a salute to the UAE flag on the man's roof. Awww!
