The official logo has been launched for next year's Year of Zayed.

The logo features a silhouette of Sheikh Zayed’s profile and is endorsed by the directives of the President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, the Higher National Committee for Year of Zayed.

The 2018 year-long, nation-wide initiative will highlight the local, regional and international achievements of Shaikh Zayed, as well as his values and principles.

His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, said: "The ‘Year of Zayed’ is a unique opportunity for the UAE community to come together and commemorate our founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, through the many important roles he played during his life as a true people’s leader, as a visionary thinker and as a global figure.

"From his selfless dedication to the welfare of his people and unshakeable commitment to building the UAE of the future, to his far-reaching influence in the global community, Sheikh Zayed’s life and legacy are a never-ending celebration of the principles, values and beliefs that are foundational to our country’s identity.

"2018 will be a momentous year for the UAE, giving a unique opportunity to share our pride in the timeless legacy of Sheikh Zayed, whose vision and values continue to live on through the many precious memories in the hearts of the people whose lives he touched with his generosity and inspirational leadership."

To be held under four main themes of wisdom, respect, sustainability and human development, the Year of Zayed will involve and engage with all demographics in the UAE, regionally and internationally, to educate and create greater awareness of the life and achievements of Sheikh Zayed.
