I wonder if the umbrellas would have the "fly emirates logo"

From a local aviation magazine:

Emirates airline, one of the world's fastest growing airlines, presented umbrellas to Dhaka Metro-politan Police (DMP), for use by the city's traffic policemen. (In Bangladesh)

Hanif Zakaria, Emirates' Sales Manager Bang-ladesh, presented 30 umbrellas to S. M. Mizanur Rahman, Commi-ssioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police at a simple ceremony at the latter's office on September 13.

Thanking Emi-rates, Rahman said, "I thank Emirates for considering the plight of our city's traffic policemen - who often work in adverse conditions of heat and rain - by donating 30 large and sturdy umbrellas. The umbrellas will go a long way in easing the day-to-day troubles faced by them."

Zakaria said: "As a responsible corporate citizen, Emirates always seeks to become involved with the community where it serves. I hope our city's diligent traffic policemen will now find cover and protection with our umbrellas, making their duty hours all the more comfortable."

He added: "I look forward to a stronger and greater co-operation with the Dhaka Metropolitan Police in the days ahead."

30 umbrellas, that couldn't have cost Emirates much and they get quite some PR.

Presumably they have the EK logo on them so this is free advertising.

does Dhaka have just 30 intersections..the amount is grossly insufficient.
i think a donation of just 30 umbrellas is just not worth discussing on this forum.

ala re ala, VT-ALA ala

Brilliant marketing idea!

Now you'll see the Emirates logo as the traffic cop waves at you in Dhaka, although, I do agree with Aseem, Emirates could have given the traffic police 1000 umbrellas (which would have been cheap and flooded the city with their logo).
