So 2016’s UAE National Day weekend is officially over (sniff, sniff).
Chances are you’re suffering from a mild case of the short-holiday blues but we have just the right medicine for you: a selection of the best photos of National Day from across Dubai.
As we’re sure you all noticed, the streets, cars and buildings of the emirate were decorated in the green, red, white and black of the United Arab Emirates’ flag.
This burst of colour, coupled with the festive and patriotic spirit that filled every corner of the city, have made for some truly sensational photos.
And of course, many of these picture-perfect moments have been posted on Instagram, so Time Out has had a thorough search and found the very best pictures for you to feast your eyes on.
