Sheikh’s name carved into private island seen from space

Ever wanted to see your name from space perfectly cut into your own island? Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan did, and since he has the means, he made it a reality. Workmen cut ‘HAMAD’ into the sand. The name is two miles across, with letters a kilometer high.

It’s so huge that the ‘H’, the first ‘A’, and part of the ‘M’ have been made into waterways. The mega-rich sheikh, 63, a member of the ruling family of Abu Dhabi, in the oil-rich United Arab Emirates, boasts a £14 billion fortune that is second only to the Saudi king’s. His fleet of more than 200 cars, including seven Mercedes 500 SELs painted in different colors of the rainbow, is housed in a custom-built pyramid.
