Another Guinness Record for Dubai
(Dubai) – The world’s biggest peace dove made of 1.2 million buttons with the colours of the UAE flag has been completed in Dubai setting a new record to make its way to Guinness World Records to highlight the UAE’s stature as a peace-loving country. The 19X19 meters white peace dove, with a design that follows the UAE’s national colours, will rise at the Burj Khalifa complex in a ceremony to be held by the organizing committee of the forthcoming region’s first-ever Peace and Sport Middle East Forum, to be held April 23-24, 2013 in Dubai.
The work is sponsored by Emaar Properties and is spearheaded by Iraqi extreme sportsman Captain Fareed Lafta, a goodwill ambassador and peace-campaigner who roped in Dubai school children from 2nd March to build the dove over seven days. At the ceremony, the committee will receive an official certificate from Guinness World Records.
