Saudi Arabia celebrated Flag Day with fervor on Saturday for the first time in its history.
To commemorate the occasion, the kingdom’s national flag has been flown over all public buildings, and it has also been adorned on roads and parks.By royal decree on March 1, Saudi King Salman bin Abdul Aziz designated March 11 as Flag Day annually.
Before a final design was approved on March 11, 1937, the Saudi national flag, which has been regarded as a symbol of strength, sovereignty, and national unity since the state of Saudi was established in 1727, underwent several modifications.
The Arabic inscription, which roughly translates to “There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah,” and a drawn sword are located at the bottom of the green flag celebrates Flag Day for the first time.
However, the calligrapher who penned the two testimonials on the flag, Abdullah Otaibi, passed away at the age of 85. He was a well-known calligrapher who made significant contributions to the growth of Saudi Arabian calligraphy.
