THE TRIAD is a direct reflection of completeness and unification. The center of the sculpture represents the Capital of the UAE, Abu Dhabi. The surrounding three prongs holding the six points symbolize the other six Emirates. THE TRIAD core center holds the prongs together in fortitude and togetherness, a direct reflection of what the UAE stands for, the global leader of innovation, creativity and modernization.

 

The sculpture pays homage to His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President of the United Arab Emirates, the Emir of Abu Dhabi and the supreme commander of the United Arab Emirates Armed Forces.

 

The luminary artwork stands tall and salutes the union of oneness, commemorating the 50th National Day Anniversary of the United Arab Emirates as we celebrate this historical milestone Golden Jubilee.
