Abu Dhabi’s entertainment destination of Yas Island will be transformed into an extravaganza of green, red, white and black on December 2nd as thousands of cars decorated in the colours of the UAE national flag gather to celebrate the country’s National Day and make a unique attempt to set a new world record.

Launched in collaboration between The Life & Style Show UAE, the country’s largest-ever consumer lifestyle show, and Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi), the world record bid aims to harness national pride to set a record for the biggest number of decorated cars in one location.

The organisers anticipate over 3,000 cars will take part in the National Day Union Car Parade with more than 300 featuring in the Guinness World Record attempt. The parade route will start at du Forum and cover more than 3.5 kilometres.


Those wishing to take part in the world record attempt must decorate their car in the UAE colours on at least two sides of their vehicle; either the roof, the bonnet, the entire left or right hand side of the car, and each part of the decorated side of the car must be completely covered.

On the parade day, on arrival at Yas Island, the event organisers will inspect each car and only those complying with the conditions will be selected to participate in the world record attempt. Once all the participating cars have been chosen, they will be led by members of Abu Dhabi Police and a pace car, decorated in the UAE colours, donated by Western Motors.
