Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s three finger symbol is all over the world. Near the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, a monument shows the arm of the UAE‘s Vice President and Prime Minister and the Emir of the Emirate of Dubai, with a hand gesture that his been popular all around the world since its debut in February 2013. Using the thumb, forefinger and the middle finger it consists of three initials that stand for a super important message. The base of the statue tells us what Sheikh Mohammed wants us to remember with the words “quality is not merely an end, it’s a way of life” engraved in Arabic and English. The three finger gesture started when the Sheikh wanted to form a logo for him and the United Arab Emirates at the Government Summit in February 2014. But, what does the three finger salute it actually mean?
When all the three fingers are straight the letter “W” is visible which means win. The UAE has won a lot of Guinness World Records and has won a lot of horse racing trophies from around the world. The UAE is no stranger in winning!
The letter “V” displayed by the index and middle fingers stands for Victory. Earlier this year on February 9th, the UAE celebrated its victory in becoming the first Arab nation as well the world’s fifth country to reach Mars. Sheikh Mohammed is a huge advocate in making people succeed at what they do and he even hired a Minister of Happiness to ensure residents are happy and fulfilled!
Using the thumb and the index finger the capital of the letter L is visible and stands for “Love”. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum launched the Arab Hope Makers initiative in 2017 as part of Mohammed bin Rashid Global Initiatives (MBRGI) to honour institutions and individuals that improve their communities and make a positive impact on the lives of people through projects, programmes and humanitarian initiatives. Sheikh Mohammed has also launched Dubai Cares which was founded on September 19th 2007 to break the cycle of poverty by ensuring all children have the ability to assess quality primary education.
SHEIKH MOHAMMED’S THREE FINGER SALUTE IS AN AMAZING SALUTE WITH AN AMAZING MEANING! DO YOU AGREE, I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU IN FEEDBACK FORM.
