Description of the symbolism of the flag
This state symbol is a rectangular green field, on which the phrase translated as Shahada. This phrase can be read from right to the left and written in sulu style.
The specialists translate it into English like this– “There is no God but Allah, and there is no prophet other than Muhammad, preaching Allah.” It is shahada that Muslims worship, and it is considered a sacred symbol for them, so it is forbidden to put a flag print on the clothes of the Arabs and various Souvenirs of Saudi Arabia.
The sword is a symbol of victory and justice of a man who played an important role in the life of the Arabian people and in the formation of its nation. To understand the symbolism of the flag of the country is to understand why it is green and white colors depicted on the canvas. This color scheme once again proves that the Arabs are believers.
The green color represents a symbol of the faith of Muslims, as it is associated with the prophet Muhammad.
White is the symbol of the Muslim religion
As for the history of this symbol, the green cloth with shahada appeared in the 18th century in the Arabian Peninsula, and in the 20th century there was the same inscription on the canvas, and in 1921 – the sword on this symbol. The flag itself was modified many times during its formation, but soon it was possible to create something that people liked and that called them to conquer new heights. The last change was in 1973, after which he was recognized as a state and finally established in Saudi Arabia.
