Facts about the Saudi Arabia Flag
The flag of Saudi Arabia 🇸🇦 consists of a green background where an inscription in Arabic “There is no god but Allah and Mohammed is his prophet” and a sword pointing to the left side of the flag are located. When the flag is raised, two flags have to be sewn together, so that the inscription is readable from both sides and that the sword is always pointing in the desired direction. The sword should commemorate the unification of the Kingdom in the 12th century, which took place under the leadership of Ibn Saud. The green color is traditionally associated with Islam, but primarily it is the color of Wanhabs and Sunnis. It is interesting that it is forbidden to lower the flag to half-mast under the threat of criminal prosecution for insulation of Islam.
