Discover the Island

The Flag Island is a destination where design, fitness and leisure intersect to offer an unparalleled experience for the public in Sharjah and the U.A.E.

Situated in the heart of the city, The Flag Island is one of Sharjah’s cultural and tourist destinations. It boasts the U.A.E. Flag on a 123 meters- high pole, which was named the world’s 7th tallest one during the opening on the 2nd of December 2012. The island stands as a celebration of the union of the U.A.E, and its colourful manifestations through its landmark flagpole.

The Island positions itself quite uniquely in the city, as it features the first specialised design gallery and space in the region, an open 1000-seats amphitheatre that brings local and international music and theatre talents through a programme of live shows and concerts. It also includes a 618 meter long jogging track and offers public fitness initiatives for its visitors throughout the year.
