Kingdom of Saudi Arabia


Green is a traditional colour used in Islamic flags and is said to be the Prophet Muhammad's favourite colour. The white Arabic script shown on the flag is the Muslim creed, or Shahada, and translates as: 'There is no god but God; Muhammad is the Messenger of God'. The sabre on the flag is reported to be symbolic of militant faith.

The National flag of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was adopted on the 15th of March 1973.
