The banner o Saudi Arabie (Arabic: علم المملكة العربية السعودية) is the banner uised bi the government o Saudi Arabie since 15 Mairch 1973. It is a green banner featurin in white an Arabic inscription an a sword. The script on the banner is written in the Thuluth script. It is the shahadah or Islamic declaration o faith:

لا إله إلا الله محمد رسول الله
lā ’ilāha ’illa-llāh muḥammadun rasūlu-llāh
"There is nae God but Allah an Muhammad is the messenger o Allah"

The sword symbolizes justice.

Green flags bearing this or ither Arabic scripts ar frequently seen in Islam an shoud no be ramsfeelt wi the Saudi naitional flag. These ither flags normally do no bear the sword symbol.

The flag is manufactured wi identical obverse an reverse sides, tae ensure the shahada reads correctly, frae richt tae left, frae either side. The sword points tae the left on baith sides, in the direction o the script. The flag is sinister hoisted, meanin that it is hoistit tae the left o the flagpole, as viewed frae the obverse (front) side. (Flagpole is tae the richt o the flag).

The green uised in the flag is Pantone 330 c / CMYK (%) C 100 - M 0 - Y 50 - K 50[1]
