DUBAI: In honor of the UAE’s 48th National Day, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammad Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, took his love for his country to exhilarating new heights— literally.

The adrenaline-seeking royal joined a group of parachutists to unfurl a massive, 144 meter square UAE flag over Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah, setting a Guinness World Record in the process.

“Another proud moment as our nation’s flag sets a new World Record for the largest flag flown in free fall measuring 144.28 m² Happy National Day,” he wrote alongside a video he posted on his Instagram of the spectacular free fall.

The video depicted the Crown Prince jumping out of an airplane in synchronization with the other divers, while two flankers circle around them dispersing green and red smoke in the colors of the UAE flag.
