Following the amendment to the Saudi Flag Law, many are predicting that لآ اِلَهَ اِلّا اللّهُ مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُوُل اللّهِ  will be removed from the flag. So, what is the truth?

Saudi Arabia’s flag contains the Arabic inscription لآ اِلَهَ اِلّا اللّهُ مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُوُل اللّهِ “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the messenger Messenger of Allah.” Saudi Arabia’s flag is green, with a white sword above the words.

There will be no alterations to the Saudi Arabian flag as a result of the amendments agreed by the Saudi Shura Council. The Kingdom’s flag, content, and emblem will remain unchanged.

  • The state emblem and national anthem, as well as when they shall be played, are also specified.
  • When it comes to hoisting the flag, the private sector has complete freedom to do so. They must first obtain a permission, which will contain regulations such as the shape and size of the flag. This will verify that all flags used by the private sector adhere to the regulations.
