Flag of Saudi Arabia (GIF)



The flag of Saudi Arabia (Arabic: علم المملكة العربية السعودية) is a green flag with a white Arabic inscription and a sword. The Arabic inscription is the Islamic creed, or shahada, which means "There is no god except Allah; Muhammad is the messenger of God." The green of the flag represents Islam, and the sword symbolizes rigidity in the provision of justice. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on March 15, 1973.

The two swords in its emblem represent the Kingdom of Hejaz and the Sultanate of Najd and its dependents, which united under Ibn Saud in 1926. In addition, swords signify the protection of the palm tree, which symbolizes the people of the kingdom and the entire existence of the kingdom.

The Saudi Arabia flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
