A total of 4,882 students from the India International School of the Pace Education Group participated in the event by wearing the colours of the UAE national flag — black, red, green, and white — at a sports complex in Sharjah. The children entered Guinness World Records by forming the largest image composed by humans, which from a bird's- eye perspective looked like a boat in the colours of the Gulf country, the daily reported. The students, from grades one to eight, will receive a certificate from Guinness World Records, it said.

Principal Manju Reji said,

It is a great achievement for our students. It is probably a once-in-a-lifetime experience for them. Their life has to go a long way like a boat sailing in an ocean. And the boat is a symbol of the UAE's heritage too. As a symbolic image, we chose the boat for this attempt.
