The flag of Saudi Arabia is the flag used by the government of Saudi Arabia since March 15, 1973. It is a green flag featuring in white an Arabic inscription and a sword. The script on the flag is written in the Thuluth script. It is the shahadah or Islamic declaration of faith:
- لا إله إلا الله محمد رسول الله
- lā ’ilāha ’illa-llāh muḥammadun rasūlu-llāh
- "(There is) no god but God. Muhammad (is the) messenger of God"
The sword symbolizes the importance of the inscription by underlining it.
