As a symbol of strong support for Emir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Ezdan Real Estate Company (EREC) launched three giant murals depicting the iconic Tamim Al Majd image at Ezdan Village 2 in Al Gharrafa yesterday.
Omar Al Yafei, Acting General Manager of EREC, led the signing ceremony which marked the event attended by residents of Ezdan Village 2, Ezdan employees, local media and visitors.
The attendees, young and old, wrote messages and wishes for the country and signed their names on the board as a gesture of loyalty and support to
the Emir and the nation. Qatari flags were distributed among those in attendance, setting a patriotic ambience.
“We are happy to have this ceremony today. It is heartening to see the overwhelming expression of support to Qatar by all people from citizens to persons of different nationalities. Hopefully, everything will be okay for Qatar and its people,” Al Yafei told The Peninsula after the ceremony.
The murals in varying sizes will stay in the residential complex for three days to offer a chance to residents and visitors to sign up their support, said Al Yafei, adding another mural is set to be unveiled in Ezdan Village in Al Wakrah.
Of the current situation in Qatar, he said, “Everything is under control. Everybody is together and there is unity among citizens and residents. We hope and trust that everything will turn out fine for everybody.”
The murals which bear the monochromatic painting of the Emir’s image with the Arabic phrase which translates to “Tamim is glory” has become a symbol of unity, resilience and strength of Qataris and residents alike.
Murals with the image, which was originally created by Qatari artist Ahmed Almaadheed, can be seen installed around the country through which people can signify their support to the nation.
