According to The Flag Bulletin XVI, 3, the vertical (red) band in the United Arab Emirates flag is as wide as one half of the width [hoist] of the flag, or one quarter of the fly.

Jaume Ollé and Joseph McMillan, 5 March 2000

According to Album des Pavillons 2000 green-white-black tricolour with red hoist, width of the hoist stripe being 1/4 of the length.

Some sources, among others Smith 1975 (but not Smith 1982 nor Crampton 1990f) give the width of the hoist red stripe being equal to the widths of the other three stripes. I do not think it goes for the change that happened eventually (gradually?) since 1971, but that these are only erroneous representations.
